The Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer degree will enable students to develop a strong foundation in research methods, statistics and both cultural and biological aspects of behavior and will offer a wide variety of elective courses in anthropology and other related fields for students to develop a broad knowledge base. The Anthropology Program educates students to understand and value the cultural and social diversity on a global scale, both past and present. In addition, students will develop strong critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills that will prepare them for the requirements of upper division course work.
To be awarded the Associate Degree for Transfer, students must have the following:
- Completion of 60 CSU transferable semester units.
- A minimum of at least 2.0 GPA in CSU transferable courses (note that a higher GPA may be required in some institutions).
- Completion of at least 18 units in the major with a grade of “C” or better. A “P” (Pass) grade is also an acceptable grade for courses in the major if the course is taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.
- Certified completion of the CSU General Education-Breadth (CSU GE-Breadth) requirements, or completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) for CSU requirements.
Please Note: No more than 60 semester units are required for this degree and no additional requirements will be imposed by Evergreen Valley College.
