2017-2018 Catalog of Courses

Graduation Requirements 1. Competency Requirements

2. General Education Requirements Students can select from one of three general education programs: CSU GE-Breadth, IGETC, or MPC GE. CSU General Education-Breadth (GE-Breadth) Program The CSU GE-Breadth Program allows California community college transfer students to fulfill lower division general education requirements for any CSU campus prior to transfer. This general education program can be a good option for students who know they want to transfer to a CSU. The CSU GE-Breadth program is designed to educate students to: think, write, and speak clearly and logically; reason quantitatively; gain knowledge about the human body and mind; the development and functioning of human society, the physical and biological world, and human cultures and civilizations; and develop an understanding of the principles, methods, and values of human inquiry. See page 74 for the components of the CSU GE-Breadth program and the courses that satisfy each component. Use this pattern with transfer preparation majors if you are transferring to a CSU campus. Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) The IGETC is a selection of courses that community college students can use to satisfy lower division general education requirements at any CSU or UC campus. The IGETC will probably be most useful for students who want to keep their options open before making a final decision about transferring to a particular UC or CSU campus. See page 75 for the components of the IGETC and the courses that satisfy each component. Use this pattern with transfer preparation majors if you plan to transfer to the CSU or the UC.
