The academic discipline of Art History involves the study of visual objects as both works of art and as artifacts of the historical and cultural contexts in which they were created. The Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer (AA-T) will provide the student with a solid foundation in both European and non–European art and visual culture from the periods of pre–history through modern. The degree program requires students to critically analyze visual objects from a variety of perspectives, utilizing various modes of analysis.
To earn an Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer a student must complete 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the CSU that consist of: IGETC pattern or CSU GE breadth and a major of at least 18 units. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework to receive an associate degree for transfer and all courses in the major must be completed with a C or better. Students earning an associate degree for transfer will not be required to complete any other local graduation requirements. A “P” (Pass) grade is also an acceptable grade for courses in the major if the course is taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.
AA-T/AS-T degrees are designed to facilitate transfer to four-year institutions. Mt. San Antonio College ranks in the Top 10 in transferring students to UC, CSU, and private universities.
