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 III or IV 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.
QR Category III students with a grade of B or higher in high school pre-calculus in the past year may be able to enroll in MATH 226. Please see a department advisor.
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet SF State Studies (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) and Ethnic Studies requirements within your GE or major.
GE Areas B2 (Life Science) and B3 (Laboratory Science) are satisfied upon completion of BIOL 240.
Students who plan to pursue a Ph.D. should complete at least two semesters of calculus and one semester of physical chemistry.
Upper-Division General Education, Physical, and Life Sciences (UD–B) is satisfied upon completion of BIOL 355.
Major Electives (11 units)
BIOL 332 Health Disparities in Cancer (3 units) (AERM, GP, SJ)
Course fulfills the upper-division laboratory elective requirement.
