ADT in Spanish

The Associate of Arts in Spanish for Transfer (AA-T) provides transfer majors with a strong foundation not only in the four basic language skills (listening comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking and writing), but also in the civilization and cultures of Spain and Latin America. The degree emphasizes the acquisition of communicative competence and the development of intercultural awareness, appreciation and understanding. Additionally, the Spanish courses align well with preparation for transfer majors in related fields such as liberal arts, language arts and linguistics, and complement majors in international relations, political science, business, education, sociology and other areas of study at UC, CSU, and private colleges and universities.

Students receiving this transfer degree must meet the following requirements:

  1. Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter 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 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
  2. 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.
