Welcome to History

Welcome to the History Department at Harbor College.  We offer an A.A. Transfer degree in History.

The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer (AA-T) Degree is intended for those transfer-directed students who plan to complete an AA in History, guaranteeing admission to the CSU system (but not to a specific campus or major). In order to earn the AA-T in History, students must complete a minimum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework which includes the CSU General Education or IGETC requirements with a grade of C or P or better and a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. This degree complies with The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440).‚Äč
