Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Tourism Management – Associate Degree for Transfer (2021) 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 Business Administration (VERSION 2, established Spring 2021). Eighteen units in the major [ACCT 100, ACCT 101, DS 212, ECON 101, ECON 102, HTM 120] 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, California State and Local Government requirements if not met pre-transfer.
  • Upper-Division GE Areas B, C, and D (9 units): Courses required for the major also satisfy UD GE.

  • Students entering the major with the AS-T in Business Administration are not required to fulfill the SF State Studies or Complementary Studies requirements.

Hospitality and Tourism Management major: 54 units [18 units completed in ADT.]

  • Major Core (42 units)
  • Guided Electives (12 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.
