Public Health Science Degree
DEGREES, CERTIFICATES & AWARDS
The Associate Degree for Transfer (AS-T in Public Health Education) is a special degree offered at California Community Colleges. Students who earn an AS-T degree in Public Health Education will be prepared to transfer and are guaranteed admission to a campus within the California State University (CSU) system in Health Science or a similar major, although not necessarily to a specific campus. Students who complete an AS-T are given priority consideration when applying to a particular program that is similar to the student’s community college major and will be given a special GPA advantage when applying to CSU impacted campuses or majors. Students who are planning to pursue an AS-T are strongly advised to meet with a counselor for additional information about this transfer program.
