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 & CA State and Local Government requirements if not taken before transfer.
  • Upper-Division GE (9 units): Courses required for the major may double-count if approved for UD GE. Students should attempt to enroll in a UD-B course in the first or second semester in order to complete the upper-division GE requirements.
  • Students entering this major with the AA-T degrees identified above 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 be applied to ensure degree completion within 60 units.

Modern Jewish Studies Major: 30 Units

  • Core (12 units) – Students may apply up to 12 units of Hebrew language transfer credit for Hebrew language courses to the Core.
  • GWAR course (3 units) – Select from any discipline or department with the approval of a Modern Jewish Studies department advisor.
  • Electives (12 units) – Must be upper-division. May be selected from the Core list, but courses cannot double-count for both Core and Elective requirements. Up to 6 units outside Jewish Studies may be applied to the major with the approval of a department advisor.
  • Culminating Experience (3 units)

University Electives: 3 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., in both UD GE and the major. Upper-division electives recommended to meet the minimum 30-unit requirement.
