ADT in Journalism
A.A. Transfer Degree
The Associate in Arts in Journalism for Transfer (AA-T) is intended for students who plan to transfer and complete a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, or a similar major such as Communications/Media Arts and Marketing at a CSU campus or for entry-level positions in the news/information industry. Students completing the AA-T degree in Journalism are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not necessarily to a particular CSU campus or major of their choice. Students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements as this AA-T in Journalism may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a college or university that is not part of the CSU system. Student journalists are encouraged to participate in campus media and internships as productivity is key to success in this rapidly evolving profession.
Students receiving this transfer degree must meet the following requirements:
- Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education - Breadth Requirements.
- A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
- Obtainment of 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. A “P” (Pass) grade is not an acceptable grade for courses in the major.
