While general education is broad and introductory in nature, coursework for a major is more specialized and focused in a particular field. Students take major courses in addition to general education courses. A major is required for both Associate Degrees and Baccalaureate Degrees. Please note that requirements for a major at SRJC may differ from the requirements for the same major at a university.
Majors for an Associate Degree
To receive an Associate Degree a student must complete a major course of study of at least 18 college units from the SRJC list of approved majors. A major provides coherence, focus, depth, sequencing, and synthesis of learning. A course may be used to satisfy both a General Education requirement and a major requirement.
Majors for Transfer to Universities
Generally speaking universities expect that transfer applicants will have chosen their major and prepared for it by taking courses recommended or required for the major. Many universities consider completion of major prep courses in their admissions decisions. Some majors require few courses in the major at the community college. Other majors (especially those in math, science, and engineering) require extensive coursework at the community college.
