 Total Units114-116
1

To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet LLD and SFSU Studies requirements (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) within your GE

2

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 ofENG 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses

3

Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3

4

You must take at least one GWAR (GW) course

5

MATH 696/MATH 697 serve as the capstone experience for the major
