Bachelor of Arts in Child and Adolescent Development: Concentration in Elementary Education Teaching Pre-Credential – ECE 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 Early Childhood Education. Six units in the major (CAD 210, CAD 260) 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 taken before transfer
- Upper-Division GE, Areas B, C, and D (9 units): Courses required for the major may double-count if approved for UD GE.
- Students entering this major with the AS-T in Early Childhood Education are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.
- Completion of major requirements includes completion of Complementary Studies.
CAD major (Concentration in Elementary Education Teaching Pre-Credential): 39-40 units
- Core (18 units): Includes GWAR.
- Concentration (21-22 units): Includes Capstone.
- A minimum grade of C or better is required for all courses in the major.
University Electives: 6 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., both in UD GE and the major.
