Program Overview

Transfer Studies: UC/CSU Transfer Studies (Math, Engineering, and Science Majors) (Certificate of Achievement)

Students who wish to pursue this certificate will choose from the general education pattern below:

General Education Patterns
A. California State University General Education/Breadth (CSU GE) 39-40 units
B. Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) 34-37 units

Courses in which students will select in the natural science and mathematics area will emphasize the natural sciences which examine the physical universe, its life forms and its natural phenomena. Courses in mathematics emphasize the development of mathematical and quantitative reasoning skills beyond the level of intermediate algebra. Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the methodologies of science as investigative tools. Students will also examine the influence that the acquisition of scientific knowledge has on the development of the world’s largest civilizations. Students wishing to transfer in Math, Engineering, and Science majors are strongly advised to meet with a counselor to develop a student education plan to ensure a smooth transfer process.
