Philosophy Dept. Goals and Objectives
The Goals and Objectives of the Cerritos College
Philosophy Program are to prepare majors for an Associate in Arts Degree in Philosophy for Transfer
and for college work in upper division philosophy courses at the California State University and
other four-year institutions.
The Cerritos College Philosophy Program also seeks to provide courses that will fulfill part of the general education requirements for other majors. Students who learn the subject and skills offered in philosophy courses will be able to transfer this knowledge and skills to a variety of career situations that require the ability to analyze complex situations, examine a position from more than one perspective, and work collaboratively.
By providing lower division academic requirements in philosophy the Associate in Arts Degree in Philosophy for Transfer will assist students to seamlessly transfer to the California State University system.
