Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics: Concentration in Foods and Community Nutrition – NUTR 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 Nutrition and Dietetics. At least 14 units in the major (BIOL 210/BIOL 211, CHEM 115, NUTR 253, and PSY 200) 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.

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. See the next bullet if not completed 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 NUTR are not required to fulfill SF State Studies or Complementary Studies requirements.

Nutrition and Dietetics Major – Concentration in Foods and Community Nutrition:  27 - 31 units

University Electives: 15 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.
