Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science – ENVS Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) Roadmap

This is a sample pathway for students who transfer to San Francisco State University in the current Bulletin year with an AS-T in Environmental Science. Twenty-one units in the major [BIOL and PHYS requirements; CHEM 180; GEOG 101; GEOG 160; MATH 226] and all lower-division GE requirements have been satisfied. Check with a major advisor about the most appropriate course sequence. Degree completion guaranteed in 60 units; see the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) section for more information.

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 Government. If not met in transfer, see next bullet.
  • Lower-Division GE (6 units) – Area C (3 units in any subarea) and Area D (3 units). D2 courses satisfy US History; D3 courses satisfy US/CA Government requirement.
  • Upper-Division GE (9 units): Courses required for the major and American Institutions may double-count if approved for UD GE.
  • Students entering the major with the AS-T in ENVS are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.

Environmental Science Major: 39-47 units

University Electives: 0 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.
