Film, Television, and Electronic Media Associate in Science for Transfer Degree
The Film, Television and Media department provides a comprehensive instructional program in radio and television broadcasting, digital film production, and digital audio and video production for use in broadcasting, cablecasting, multimedia, film production, and Internet applications.
The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major.
To earn a Film, Television, and Electronic Media AS-T degree, students must complete the following Associate Degree for Transfer requirements:
- completion of the following major requirements with a minimum grade of “C” (or “P”);
- completion of a minimum of 60 CSU transferable semester units with a grade point average of at least 2.0; and
- certified completion of the CSU General Education-Breadth (CSU-GE) or Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) for CSU, which requires a minimum of 37-39 units.
It is highly recommended that students complete courses that satisfy the U.S. History, Constitution, and American Ideals requirement as part of CSU-GE or IGETC before transferring to a CSU.
Students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate institution and major in Film, Television, and Electronic Media should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
