The Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) in Film, Television, and Electronic Media is designed for students pursuing transfer majors in film & media studies and film & television production.

The AS-T in Film, Television, and Electronic Media is designed to give the student a basic framework with flexibility to tailor the degree to their interests. It is designed to prepare students for careers in the film and television industries by giving them a variety of hands-on opportunities.

The Film, Television, and Electronic Media 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 are required to complete 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:

  1. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements.
  2. A minimum of 18.00 semester units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district. Students are also required to obtain a minimum grade point average of 2.0. ADTs also require that students must earn a C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.

Course Prerequisites and Advisories:

Courses in a program of study may have prerequisites or advisories; that is, courses that must or should be completed before taking that course. Please check for prerequisites or advisories by clicking on the course numbers in the Program Requirements section.

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.


Effective Fall 2022 students who completed both CS 74.21A and CS 74.21B in prior semesters may substitute those courses for CS 74.22, as part of the requirement for an AS-T in Film, Television and Electronic Media.
