Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Roadmap
120 Total Units Required
Minimum Number of Units in the Major: 30
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.
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.
Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.
Required of all candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish are 12 units of Complementary Studies, which must come from courses bearing a prefix other than SPAN, and not cross-listed with SPAN. Complementary Studies for the Spanish major can be satisfied via four possible routes:
12 units in any foreign language other than Spanish (may include up to 3 units of MLL prefix courses);
12 units of course work taken in an approved study abroad program (including CSU Study Abroad and SF State Bilateral);
12 units of course work taken as partial completion of a second major, a minor or a certificate;
12 units of course work in related disciplines with the approval of a Spanish Program advisor.
Related disciplines typically include linguistics, literature, philosophy, history, education, and any aspect of Spain, Latin America, or Latino/Latina Studies.
Where a course with a non-SPAN prefix, and not cross-listed with SPAN, is taken as a core requirement or elective for the Spanish major, the said course may also (double) count towards Complementary Studies only via the Study Abroad option or the second Major, Minor, or Certificate option listed above. Students satisfying Complementary Studies through the Foreign Language option are allowed a maximum of three units of overlap of MLL-prefix courses between Spanish major and Complementary Studies units. Students satisfying Complementary Studies through the Related Subjects option are not allowed to double-count major and Complementary Studies units.
Students who have earned AA-T or AS-T degrees and are pursuing a similar B.A. degree at SF State are required to fulfill the Complementary Studies requirement as defined by the major department. Students should consult with a major advisor about how transfer units and/or SF State units can best be applied to this requirement to ensure degree completion within 60 units.
