Description:

See the state issued Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) template for any further clarification regarding program requirements.

Students completing the Associate in Arts for Transfer in Psychology at Santa Rosa Junior College will develop skills and knowledge consistent with the study of Psychology in a global, multicultural, and comparative context. The successful student will have mastered the reading, writing, and research skills essential to psychological inquiry and exposition. Completion of the major will provide the orientation and background necessary for success in psychology at the university level and will provide a foundation for lifelong learning. This major fulfills the transfer model curriculum for the California State University (CSU) campuses.

The Psychology Associate in Arts for Transfer degree is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an ADT are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system. 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 develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

Students will have to fulfill the following requirements to earn this degree.

  1. Completion of 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
    a) The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth requirements; and
    b) A minimum of 27 semester units as required for the Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer major.
  2. Obtainment of an overall minimum grade point average of 2.0.
  3. Earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer major.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
