Program Type: AA Degree

Division: C & I Committee Member - Non-Faculty

Program Description:
Responsible Divisions: Engineering and Technology, Performing and Communication Arts, Visual Arts and Media Studies, English, Languages, Social Sciences

The term Humanities refers to a broad range of subjects, including art, architecture, history, music, dance, languages, literature, philosophy, ethics, and religion. Students who select Humanities as an area of emphasis study the achievements of the human heart and mind; they work within a variety of disciplines in order to acquire a deeper understanding of themselves, civilization, and the world. Students have the opportunity to study the diverse strands of human thought and culture. They train for a career where a broad humanistic understanding is appropriate, or acquire self cultivation through interdisciplinary study. This area of emphasis is intended to align student course work with preparation for transfer to universities in such majors as Architecture, Art, English, Foreign Languages, History, Humanities, Music, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theatre Arts, and other similar fields of study. Such majors are widely available in most CSU, UC, and private schools.

PLEASE NOTE: The courses that universities and colleges require for transfer vary. When selecting courses for transfer purposes, students should consult with Counseling Services to determine the particular transfer requirements of specific transfer institutions.

Courses must be completed with a grade of C or better.

Students must complete a minimum of eighteen (18) units selected from the courses listed below.
