Associate of Arts Transfer English-MTM


AA-T English-MTM - Student in Library

The statewide English Literature Major Transfer Map (MTM) will use the Associate of Arts Transfer degree formats.

The MTMs identify the optimal and specific set of community college courses students need to take to transfer efficiently into the major at the university.  The successful completion of the MTM allows students to receive status at the public university, based on the number of academic credits referenced in the transfer agreement, including at least 30 credits of general education satisfied.  An MTM earned compares to the status of students with the same number of academic credits in the major course of study who began their postsecondary studies at the public university.  The students will not be required to retake a course, as long as the minimum required grades have been earned.

Students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 and meet the residency requirements at the community college awarding the MTM.

This Major Transfer Map outlines specific course requirements for students at any Oregon community college who plan to transfer to a four-year public university and earn a Bachelor of Arts in English literature.  Students may take classes that fit these categories at any Oregon community college and expect all classes to transfer into general education or the major at any Oregon public university.  This map is intended for students who know they want to transfer and earn a Bachelor of Arts in English literature, but who are unsure of their intended transfer destination.  Students should work with an advisor to ensure they fulfill the requirements of this major transfer map.  Once students are certain of both their major and intended transfer destination, they should consult with an advisor for information on an existing specific articulation agreement or degree map that will prescribe their course requirements.  If a student is seeking a Bachelor of Science in English literature, they should work with an advisor.



Program Learning Outcomes

In addition to Institutional Learning Outcomes, standards have been established for Student Learning Outcomes in General Education Courses in the following categories: Arts and Letters, Cultural Literacy, Mathematics, Science or Computer Science, Social Science, Speech and Oral Communication, Writing, and Information Literacy.
