Description:

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

This Associate in Arts for Transfer in Social Justice Studies is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate programs in Social Justice, Ethnic Studies, Women or Gender Studies, or to programs focused on ethnic groups such as Chicano/Latino Studies, African American Studies, Asian American Studies, or Native American Studies. Social Justice Studies explores the experiences of individuals from different interdisciplinary studies of different groups and the complex relations and phenomena of culture, power, oppression, equity, and equality from the perspective of what is fair and just.
