To Do at SF State:

Enough total units to reach 120 minimum for graduation; 40 units minimum at the upper division level; to include the following:

University-Wide Requirements: 6–18 Units

  • ENG 214 or equivalent A4 course (0–3 units) if not taken before transfer
  • American Institutions (0–6 units): US History, US Government, California State and Local Government requirements if not taken before transfer
  • Upper division GE, areas B, C and D (6–9 units): Many courses satisfying the Culture Studies areas also satisfy UD-C.
  • Students entering the major with the AA-T in Art History are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.
  • Complementary Studies: consult with a department advisor on how transfer units and/or SF State units can best be applied to this requirement in order to ensure degree completion within 60 units.

Humanities Major: 39 Units

Three units from the Art History AA-T may be applied to the Additional Courses area.

  • Core (15 units) – includes GWAR-designated course
  • Cross-Cultural Studies (6 units)
  • European Culture Studies (6 units)
  • American Culture Studies (6 units)
  • Asian Culture Studies (6 units)
  • Additional Courses (0 units – consult with major advisor about applying units from the AA-T)

University Electives: Three 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. both in UD GE and the major.
