Bachelor of Arts in Comparative and World Literature Roadmap – Quantitative Reasoning Category I/II and ENG 114
120 Total Units Required
Minimum Number of Units in the Major: 39
This roadmap is a suggested plan of study and does not replace meeting with an advisor. Please note that students may need to adjust the actual sequence of courses based on course availability. Please consult an advisor in your major program for further guidance.
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 of ENG 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses.
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet the SF State Studies (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) requirements within your GE or major.
Bachelor of Arts students must complete at least 12 units of Complementary Studies outside of the primary prefix for the major. (Note: Students may not use an alternate prefix that is cross-listed with the primary prefix for the major.)
Students who complete two majors or a major and a minor automatically complete the Complementary Studies requirement. Additional ways to complete Complementary
Students who have earned AA-T or AS-T degrees and are pursuing a similar B.A. degree at SF State are required to fulfill the Complementary Studies requirement as defined by the major department. Students should consult with a major advisor about how transfer units and/or SF State units can best be applied to this requirement in order to ensure degree completion within 60 units.
Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.
Program Electives (21 Units)
In consultation with departmental advisors, students select upper-division literature courses that reflect their chosen advising pathway. These courses may be from departments other than CWL (maximum five courses from a single literature).

Students following the Comparative Literature pathway are advised to take courses that meet the following distribution requirements:
Note: Students following the “Comparative Literature” pathway may count up to three units of a non-literature foreign language course toward their degree.
Students following the World Literature pathway are advised to take CWL 230 and upper-division courses that meet the following:
