              Graduation Requirements
                The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges has authorized the
              Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees to confer the degrees of
              Associate in Arts and Associate in Science.
                The awarding of an Associate Degree symbolizes a successful attempt on the part
              of the college to lead students through patterns of learning experiences designed to
              develop certain capabilities and insights. Among these are the ability to think and to
              communicate clearly and effectively both orally and in writing; to use mathematics;
              to understand the modes of inquiry of the major disciplines; to be aware of other
              cultures and times; to achieve insights gained through experience in thinking about
              ethical problems; and to develop the capacity for self-understanding. In addition to
              these accomplishments, the student should possess sufficient depth in some field of
              knowledge to contribute to lifetime interest.
