Bachelor of Arts in German Roadmap – Quantitative Reasoning Category I/II and ENG 114
120 Total Units Required
Minimum Number of Units in the Major: 44
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.
May be fulfilled by AP test credit.
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.
Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.
Required of all candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree in German are 12 units of Complementary Studies, which must come from courses bearing a prefix other than GER, and not cross-listed with GER. Complementary Studies for the German major can be satisfied via four possible routes:
Related disciplines typically include linguistics, literature, communication, Jewish studies, philosophy, history, humanities, education, and any aspect of Europe.
Where a course with a non-GER prefix, (and not cross-listed with GER), is taken as a core requirement or elective for the German major, the said course may also (double) count towards Complementary Studies only via the Study Abroad option or the second major/minor/certificate option listed above. Students satisfying Complementary Studies through the Foreign Language option are allowed a maximum of 3 units of overlap of MLL-prefix courses between German major and Complementary Studies units.
Students satisfying Complementary Studies through the Related Subjects option are not allowed to double-count major and Complementary Studies units.
Upper-Division Electives (18 units)
Any upper-division course (GER 300+) can be counted as an elective.
Given catalog rights, fall 2022 transfer students do not need to complete an Area F course.
