Students increase their personal and civic potential through study of the human condition. A student can prepare to graduate with a 2-year degree from COS or transfer to a four-year university. The requirements for degrees can be very different so students are encouraged to visit a counselor. Students planning to transfer to a University of California (UC) must complete courses listed on the IGETC as well as prepare for their major. Students planning to transfer to a California State University (CSU) must complete courses on the IGETC or on the CSU pattern.
