Art Icon   Art: Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree



Major Directive

Updated: September 28, 2010

The major panel courses recommended will be accepted as credit toward the major at the receiving institutions listed. Credit will either be accepted as a course equivalent or be counted as elective credit toward fulfilling the requirements of the major.

  • Once a transfer institution is chosen, students should consult the appropriate transfer guide as soon as possible for guidance on the most successful transfer path .Click here to view other Articulation Agreements..
  • Note that if the receiving institution does not offer the course or does not offer it at the lower-division level, the student will receive elective lower-division major credit for the course but may be required to take the course at the upper division level.
  • Receiving institutions may still require additional lower division courses to satisfy the major requirements, but students transferring should be able to complete the remaining courses in the same time that a native student can be reasonably expected to do so.
  • Approval of this list of recommended courses does not guarantee that the student will be admitted to the receiving institution or to that major.

The following institutions have agreed to the major courses listed below:
