University-Wide Requirements: 9-15 Units
- American Institutions (0-6 units): US History, US Government, California State and Local Government requirements if not met pre-transfer.
- Upper-division GE (9 units): Courses required for the major may double-count if approved for UD GE.
- Students entering this major with the AS-T in Public Health are not required to fulfill SF State Studies or Complementary Studies requirements.
Health Education Major: 46-49 Units
- Prerequisites (4 units): BIOL 210 and BIOL 211
- Required: 36 units
- Community-based Public Health Emphasis (6-9 units): See notes 1 and 2 above. Also, note that PH 221 equivalent may have been taken for ADT.
University Electives: 0 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., UD GE and the major.
