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: 9-12 Units

US History, US/CA/Local Government satisfied before transfer.

  • ENG 214 or equivalent A4 course (0-3 units) if not taken before transfer. See note 1 above.
  • Upper-division GE, areas B, C and D (9 units): See grid above for courses that satisfy both UD GE and major requirements.
  • Students entering this major with the AA-T in Elementary Education are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements; also, because of the interdisciplinary nature of the major, students automatically fulfill the Complementary Studies requirement.

Liberal Studies Major: 40 Units

HIST 114, MATH 165 met in transfer – applied to Emphasis.

  • Core (31 upper-division units)
  • Emphasis (9 upper-division units)

University Electives: 17 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 40-unit requirement.
