This curriculum is designed for those who want to study pre-law, journalism, interdisciplinary studies, English, sociology, economics, and other similar disciplines at a four-year school. It gives students the flexibility to pursue a major interest and, at the same time, to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. Students should seek guidance from advisors and the institution to which they intend to transfer to determine appropriate coursework for specific transfer patterns.
