Current Schedule:  Fall 2016  Learning Communities

AS-T Business Administration (Semester 1)

Students who enroll in this Learning Community are on the path to completing the degree in two years.

The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer degree provides the student with an introductory foundation of business and prepares a student to transfer to a CSU. The program offers students a foundation in business operations and management, accounting, economics, mathematics, computer science, and business law.

This degree is designed to provide a pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree in Business Administration. California Community College students who are awarded an Associate in Science in Business Administration degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

See the Catalog for more information about this degree program.

AA-T Psychology (Semester 1)

Students who enroll in this Learning Community are on the path to completing the degree in two years.

This program is designed to satisfy the lower division requirements for students planning to transfer to a California State University (CSU) with a major in psychology. The study of psychology involves acquiring knowledge about human and animal behavior as a basis for further study in advanced courses, as a basis for working with clients in a supervised therapy setting, and as a basis for being an informed citizen in our society. It is not just acquisition of knowledge but also an understanding of the variety of causes for human cognition, emotions, and behavior. An understanding of the causation of behavior leads to greater sensitivity and compassion toward the motives of other people and a more specific and accurate interpretation of their behavior. It also results in greater insight into and acceptance of the reasons for one's own behavior and as a possible vehicle for change. Course substitutions are not permitted for this degree.

See the Catalog for more information about this degree program.

Prerequisites: ENG 079 with a grade of "C" or better or Composition Level 3 and Reading Level 2.**
