The Associate in Arts in Sociology for Transfer is intended for those transfer-directed students who plan to complete an AA in Sociology because it guarantees admission to the CSU system (but not to a particular campus or major). In order to earn the Associate in Arts in Sociology for Transfer, students must complete a minimum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework which includes the CSU General Education or IGETC requirements with a minimum GPA of 2.0.
Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the Associate in Arts in Sociology for Transfer will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree (unless the major is a designated “high-unit” major).
This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system.
Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. No additional graduation requirements are required to complete this degree.
Sociology is the study of groups, institutions, social relationships, and social problems in contemporary society. The sociology major prepares the student for careers in law, social work, human services, urban development, law enforcement agencies, public service, counseling, mental health, teaching, and community service.
