Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics: Concentration in Mathematics for Advanced Study – MATH Associate Degree for Transfer 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 Mathematics. At least 12 units in the major (MATH 226, MATH 227, MATH 228) and all lower division GE requirements have been satisfied. Additional units in the major may 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.

 Total Units60

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: 9-18 Units

  • ENG 214 or equivalent A4 course (0-3 units) if not taken before transfer
  • 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)
  • Students entering this major with the AS-T in Mathematics 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.

Mathematics for Advanced Study Major: 33-36 Units

MATH 226-MATH 227-MATH 228 met in transfer; CSC 210 may have been met in transfer.

  • Core (12 units)
  • Concentration (21-24 units)

University Electives: Six 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. UD GE and the major.
