To Do at SF State:

Enough total units to reach 120 minimum for graduation; 40 units minimum at the upper-division level; to include the following:

University-Wide Requirements: 6 Units

  • American Institutions: US History, US Government, CA State and Local Government requirements. If not completed before transfer, some major requirement courses also satisfy specific major requirements. See grid above.
  • University Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement/GWAR (3 units): ETHS 300GW
  • Upper-Division GE (9 units): Courses required for the major may double-count if approved for UD GE.
  • Students entering the major with the AA-T in Social Justice Studies are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.
  • Complementary Studies: Consult with a department advisor on how transfer units and/or SF State units can be applied to ensure degree completion within 60 units.

Latina/Latino Studies Major:  39 Units

  • Core (12 units)
  • Arts and Humanities (3 units): Select courses in consultation with department advisor.
  • History (3 units): Select courses in consultation with department advisor.

  • Electives (15 units)

University Electives: 9 or More Units

Depends on course choices made at the community college, how transferred units are applied to the requirements above, and course choices at SF State. Some courses may meet more than one requirement, e.g. in both UD GE and in the major.
