Bachelor of Arts in Asian American Studies Roadmap
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet LLD and SF State Studies requirements (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) within your GE or major.
ENG 114 can only be taken if you complete Directed Self-Placement (DSP) and select ENG 114; if you choose ENG 104/ ENG 105 through DSP you will satisfy A2 upon successful completion of ENG 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses.
Depending on courses completed through Early Start, students in Pathway/Category 3 or 4 may be required to enroll in a support course to complement their Quantitative Reasoning/B4 requirement. There are multiple course options for this pathway. Before enrolling in a B4 course, students should verify their MATH Pathway/Category in their Student Center. Information regarding the courses that correspond with your MATH Pathway/Category can be found on the Developmental Studies Office Website.
Bachelor of Arts students must complete 12 units of complementary studies outside of the primary prefix for the major and not cross-listed with the primary prefix for the major.
Students who complete two majors or a major and a minor automatically complete the complementary studies requirement.
Students in the Asian American Studies major may also satisfy the complementary studies requirement by completing one of the following options:
With the approval of an advisor in the major, courses that fulfill the Complementary Studies requirement may be lower or upper division units, resident or transfer units.
Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.
Ethnic Courses (15 Units)
AA S 360 Koreans in the United States (3 units)
Panethnic Courses (9 Units)
Other AA S 500-600 level courses are acceptable upon advisement. AA S 685, AA S 688, or AA S 699 may count for this area if the course content is panethnic (a maximum of three units from AA S 685, AA S 688, or AA S 699 can count towards the Asian American Studies major’s total unit requirement of 39). A lower division course may also substitute for three units with approval from an advisor.
