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: 9–18 units

  • ENG 214 or equivalent A4 course (0–3 units): This course is a major prerequisite. Students are not admitted to the major unless this requirement has been completed. Completion in 60 units is possible, but not in four semesters if ENG 214 requirement is not satisfied before transfer.
  • American Institutions (0–6 units): US History, US Government, California State and Local Government requirements if not taken before transfer
  • Upper division GE, areas B, C and D (9 units): Look for courses required in the major that also satisfy UD GE. See notes.
  • Students entering this major with the AS-T in Early Childhood Education are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.
  • Complementary Studies is satisfied by taking the required minimum of 12 units in disciplines other than CAD.

CAD major (Concentration in Youth Work & Out of School Time: 38–39 units

CAD 210 and CAD 260 met in transfer.

  • Major Core (12 units): Includes GWAR 
  • Concentration (26–27 units): Includes Culminating Experience.
  • Minimum grade of C or better required for all courses in the major.

University Electives: 6 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. both in UD GE and the major.
