Bachelor of Arts in History: Honors Concentration Roadmap
120 Total Units Required
Minimum number of units in the Major: 45
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet LLD and SF State Studies requirements (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) within your GE.
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.
Depending on courses completed through Early Start, students in Pathway/Category 3 or 4 may be required to enroll in a support course to complement their Quantitative Reasoning/B4 requirement. There are multiple course options for this pathway. Before enrolling in a B4 course, students should verify their MATH Pathway/Category in their Student Center. Information regarding the courses that correspond with your MATH Pathway/Category can be found on the Developmental Studies Office Website.
Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.
All candidates for the Bachelor of Arts in History are required to complete 12 units of complementary studies. The History department will accept complementary studies in any of four distinct paths outlined below from courses with a prefix other than HIST, and not cross-listed with HIST. These units can be earned in residence at San Francisco State, in a Study Abroad Program, or transferred.
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 in order to ensure degree completion within 60 units.
Fields of Study (24 units)
Students should complete 12 upper division units in one field of study and 6 upper division units in each of two other fields of study. U.S. History must be one of the three fields.
Students may complete 6 units in each of the three fields of study, distributed geographically as above, and 6 elective units, so long as a minimum of 12 units fall under a theme approved on departmental advisement such as Empire and Imperialism; Gender, Sexuality and the Body; Religion and Society; or the Pre-modern World (applicable courses are listed in the department’s Undergraduate Advising Booklet).
