1

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.

2

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

3

Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if the requirement has not already been met.

4

Select two upper division courses – one in 20th/21st century art and one non-European art (unless non-European requirement was met in lower division art history).

5

Choose one, two, or three studio areas to develop skills that will lead to developing a guided, personally directed body of work in a capstone course in the senior year.
