TRANSFER STUDIES

A.S. and A.A. Degree


The transfer studies program provides students the opportunity to explore diverse methods of inquiry through coursework required for fulfilling the El Camino College general education requirements. Students will develop critical thinking skills, learn to communicate effectively in writing, and acquire an understanding of major concepts, issues, and diverse viewpoints. Through course options, students will use mathematical concepts to solve problems, employ methods of scientific inquiry to understand the world around them, and investigate health and fitness in their personal lives. Completion of the degree requirements will prepare students with the skills and resources needed to make transfer decisions. Competencies will be assessed through successful program completion rates.
