ASSOCIATE IN ARTS DEGREE IN ENGLISH FOR TRANSFER (AA-T)
Program Code: 1A32000
This curriculum is designed to provide an opportunity for the English major to achieve an Associate in Arts Degree in English for Transfer (AA-T in English) which completes the first and second year requirements for transfer to a four-year public California institution. While at least a baccalaureate degree is recommended preparation for those considering professional careers, completion of this curriculum will demonstrate commitment to the field and provide comprehensive preparation for further academic study through upper-division course work. This degree is designed to prepare students to read and write critically about literature and to understand key historical and generic influences in the production and reception of literature and other cultural texts. This curriculum specifically prepares the prospective transfer student for upper division coursework in English or a similar major at a California State University (CSU) campus. Students should consult a counselor, the Transfer Center, and the catalog of the transfer college or university to plan a specific program of study to meet the college or university’s requirements. Note: Courses that fulfill major requirements for an Associate Degree for Transfer at Cypress College might not be the same as those required for completing the major at all transfer institutions offering a Baccalaureate Degree. The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746–66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an “associate degree for transfer,” a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The AA-T is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the AA-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree (unless the major is designated “high-unit” major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a 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. The completion of this curriculum will demonstrate commitment to the English field and provide comprehensive preparation for upper-division work. To earn an AA-T in English students must complete the following requirements: (1) a minimum of 18–21 semester units or 28.5–30 quarter units in the English major with a minimum grade of “C”; (2) California State University General Education Breadth requirements (CSU GE Breadth) or
