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 taken before transfer.
  • Upper-Division GE, Areas B, C, and D (9 units): Courses required for the major may double-count if approved for UD GE.
  • 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: 6 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.
