A.A. in Business Administration—Transfer
This program provides an opportunity for students to earn an Associate in Arts degree in Business Administration while preparing to transfer as an upper division student to a four-year college or university. For those students considering a career in business, a baccalaureate degree is necessary. However, the attainment of an A.A. degree will demonstrate commitment to the field and the student’s ability to complete an educational goal. An Associate in Arts degree is awarded for satisfactory performance in major courses, as well as completion of general education and graduation requirements. Please note: Students may choose English 120, 120SL, or 150 to complete the Associate degree. Transfer students, however, are advised to complete English 150. All students should consult the counselor assigned to Business and Social Sciences.
