Program Overview

Transfer Studies: Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) (Certificate of Achievement)

Completion of all these requirements (34-37 units) will permit you to transfer to any CSU or UC campus without the need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division general education courses. Students will understand the basic principles of natural sciences, social and behavioral sciences, the humanities and fine arts.

Students will also be able to think critically, to reason using quantitative models and will develop basic speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in a foreign language.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of how societies and social subgroups operate.
  • Critically explain how people act and have acted in response to their societies.

Agribusiness Student

"I chose to take classes here in the agribusiness program because I work in the wine industry and really feel that it's important to have as much knowledge as possible. My purpose in taking classes is just to educate myself so then I can hopefully go back to work and educate both my coworkers as well as customers that we have."
