Associate Degrees: (continued)

Liberal Arts Associate in Arts

The Associate Degree in Liberal Arts is designed for students who wish to have a broad knowledge of liberal arts and sciences plus additional coursework in an “area of emphasis.” This area of emphasis would be an ideal choice for students who plan to transfer to the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC). Students can satisfy general education requirements plus focus on transferable course work that relate to majors at these institutions. Please consult with a counselor for information regarding your intended major at the specific college or university of your choice.

Program Learning Outcomes: Demonstrate competency in various areas including: math, English, social science, humanities, and natural and physical sciences; apply written and verbal communication skills in personal and professional environment; describe the importance of a liberal education; apply critical thinking skills.

  • Choose either Option A: Porterville College Local General Education Pattern, Option B: CSU General Education Breadth or Option C: IGETC (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum) for the general education pattern which relates to your educational goal. Completion of the Porterville College Local General Education Pattern DOES NOT prepare a student for transfer. If you are planning to transfer to a four-year school, depending on your transfer goal, you should select Option B or C only. Please consult with a counselor or educational advisor if you have any question about which option is right for you.
  • Complete 18 units in one “Area of Emphasis” from those outlined below. (Note: Where appropriate, courses in the “Area of Emphasis” may also apply toward general education areas on the general education pattern.)
  • All classes listed below transfer to the CSU system and courses in BOLD also transfer to the UC system. Please refer to www.assist.org for articulation agreements and transfer details for each course.

Requirements

General Education: Porterville College General Education, CSU General Education Breadth or IGETC (31-40 units).

Areas of Emphasis: A minimum of 18 units are required in one Area of Emphasis listed below. Courses selected may also be used to fulfill GE areas. Refer to each transfer institution policy.
