Department: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies (LGBT)
Approval: April 2017
Effective Semester: Fall 2019

Associate in Arts in Social Justice Studies: Feminist, Queer, and Trans Studies for Transfer is a joint program between the Women’s and Gender Studies and the LGBT Studies Departments. This AA-T offers students breadth of knowledge through a set of introductory courses addressing gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, ability and depth of knowledge through courses that focus on intersecting identities within feminist, queer, and trans theories. We aim to understand and dismantle cultural and institutionalized oppressions like sexism, heterosexism, homophobia, cissexism, transphobia, racism, classism, ableism, and ageism. The AA-T prepares students who wish to transfer and pursue a baccalaureate degree in a field related to Social Justice, particularly at the California State University campuses. Related fields include Women and Gender Studies, LGBT Studies, Queer Studies, Feminist Studies, Sexuality Studies, Ethnic Studies, Critical Race Studies, or any of a number of other CSU Majors included in this "area of emphasis."

It is advised that potential majors meet with an affiliated counselor or department chair to discuss educational goals, course options, and transfer issues.
