STAR Act (SB 1440):

The History department accepts the AA-T in History for transfer into this major. We recommend transfer students complete the following courses, which are required for the History major at SJSU, as part of their AA-T in History. Students should take courses which clear the American Institution requirement and a second course in English composition as part of their CSU GE or IGETC requirements for the AA-T degree (doing so will increase greater choice in the 60 units of SJSU course work to be taken after transfer).
