Degree Option 1

Coastline General Education Pattern

Coastline Community College Associate Degree General Education Pattern - 2017-2018

This general education option is designed for students pursuing an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science (AA/AS) and who may or may not be planning to transfer to a four-year institution. Most of the coursework in this option is applicable towards transfer. Other colleges and universities may accept this degree for transfer. See a Coastline counselor for more information.

Students must at least 18 units in the specific courses listed in Groups A-E. Students may select courses from any sub-area under each specific group. One course may not be used to satisfy more than one general education requirement; however, the same course may be used to satisfy both a general education and a requirement for the major or area of emphasis. Students may double-count courses for the Global and Multicultural Studies Requirement.
