    The Journalism major consists of courses appropriate for the Associate in Arts in Journalism for Transfer degree, which provides a foundational understanding of the discipline, a breadth of coursework in the discipline and preparation for transfer to any CSU that accepts the Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC). Jobs in the field include journalist, multimedia producer, editor, writer, publication designer, copy editor, social media specialist, content producer, newsletter editor, public relations representative, publicist, sportswriter and photojournalist. The Associate in Arts in Journalism for Transfer is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelors degree in Journalism (or an approved similar major) at a CSU campus. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept this degree will be required to complete no more than 60 (semester) units after transfer to earn a bachelors degree. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
