Image of a Graduation Cap and Diploma. Mt. San Antonio College’s Associate of Arts degrees are designed to meet the needs of students interested in graduating with a two-year college degree by studying in a specific area of emphasis. These students are not intending to pursue a specific occupational major, nor are they necessarily planning to transfer. However, careful educational planning with a counselor or an educational advisor will help ensure that, if a student subsequently decides to transfer at a later date to a four-year college or university, he or she would have a solid foundation in the transfer process. Transfer students may also become eligible for a Certificate of Achievement in CSU General Education Breadth or Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) by completing requirements shown in Section 9 - 'Transferring to California Colleges and Universities' in the current college catalog .

To qualify for an Associate of Arts degree, students must complete all the graduation requirements as listed on page 31 of this catalog. In addition, students choose one of eleven "areas of emphasis" and complete the appropriate requirements as shown in this section. Courses listed within an area of emphasis may also be used to satisfy general education requirements, with additional elective courses chosen by the student to complete the 60-unit degree requirement. The printed degree and transcript notation will read "Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Emphasis in Information Technology."

Note: Students wishing to transfer to the California State University system may be required to select additional General Education courses from either the CSU General Education pattern found in Section 9 - 'Transferring to California Colleges and Universities' in the current college catalog  or from the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Core Curriculum (IGETC) pattern listed in Section 9 - 'Transferring to California Colleges and Universities' in the current college catalog .

Students wishing to transfer to the University of California system may be required to select additional General Education courses only from the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Core Curriculum (IGETC) pattern listed in Section 9 - 'Transferring to California Colleges and Universities' in the current college catalog .

All students wishing to transfer are strongly advised to meet with a counselor or educational advisor to determine the most effective selection of general education courses to facilitate transfer to either the California State University system or to the University of California in specific majors.
