The Associate in Arts in Studio Arts for Transfer is intended for those transfer-directed students who plan to complete an AA in Art because it guarantees admission to the CSU system (but not to a particular campus or major). In order to earn the degree, students must complete a maximum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework which includes the CSU General Education Breadth or IGETC requirements with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the Associate in Arts in Studio Arts for Transfer degree 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. This degree eliminates the additional Bakersfield College graduation requirements.
The Bakersfield College Art Department wishes to expose students to study in a wide variety of media, and to prepare them to make societal contributions by becoming citizens who are visually literate, culturally aware, skilled in creative problem-solving, and aesthetically sensitive.
