To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet LLD and SF State Studies requirements (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) within your GE.

2

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.

Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.

Complementary Studies

Students completing a Bachelor of Arts in Latina/Latino Studies must complete at least twelve units in Complementary Studies with a prefix other than LTNS, and not cross-listed with LTNS. These units may be in

  1. a Spanish or other Latin American Language;
  2. one course from each of these prefixes: AAS, AFRS, AIS, and RRS;
  3. 12 units in one of the prefixes AAS, AFRS, AIS or RRS;
  4. partial completion of a minor, or partial completion of a certificate;
  5. a study abroad program in Latin America; or
  6. upon advisement, a coherent group of courses complementary to the major.

With the approval of an advisor in the major, courses which fulfill the Complementary Studies requirement may be lower or upper division units, resident or transfer units.

Students who have earned AA-T or AS-T degrees and are pursuing a similar B.A. degree at SF State are required to fulfill the Complementary Studies requirement as defined by the major department. Students should consult with a major advisor about how transfer units and/or SF State units can best be applied to this requirement in order to ensure degree completion within 60 units.
