Bachelor of Science in Health Education – PHS Associate Degree for Transfer Roadmap
This is a sample pathway for students who transfer to San Francisco State University in the current Bulletin year with an AS-T in Public Health Science. Thirteen units in the major (BIOL 100, BIOL 101, H ED 290, MATH 124) and all lower-division GE requirements have been satisfied. Additional units in the major may have been satisfied. Check with a major advisor about the most appropriate course sequence. Degree completion guaranteed in 60 units; see the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) section for more information.

H ED 455 fulfills GE UD-C.

Many Community-based Public Health Emphasis courses are also approved for UD-D.
To Do at SF State:
Enough total units to reach 120 minimum for graduation; 30 units minimum at the upper-division level; to include the following:
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 2 and 3 in grid. Also, note that H ED 221 equivalent may have been taken for ADT.
University Electives: Zero 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.
