Segment II: Arts and Sciences Core – 27 units

Please note: These requirements reflect University Executive Directive 09-35, the Executive Directive to Facilitate Graduation.

Students with the following majors must consult with their major advisors regarding approved modifications of GE. Exceptions are valid only if the student graduates with the listed degree major:

  • B.A. in English (all concentrations)
  • B.A./B.S. in Environmental Studies (all concentrations)

 

General Requirements

Freshman Student Pattern

  1. In each Segment II Area, (PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must complete at least 9 units towards the minimum 27 units.
  2. In each Segment II Area (PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must select courses from at least two different departments. That is, at least three units of the nine-unit minimum must have a different departmental prefix. Students are not held to completion of the specific category requirements within each Segment II Area, except as required in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  3. Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement and one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement. Some courses have been approved to satisfy both requirements.

Transfer Student Pattern

  1. In each Segment II Area (i.e., PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must complete a minimum of nine units, but are not held to completion of the specific category requirements within each Segment II Area, except as required in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  2. Within each Segment II Area, students must select courses from at least two different departments. That is, at least three units of the nine-unit minimum must have a different departmental prefix.
  3. Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement. While transfer students are not required to complete the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement, they are encouraged to select courses that address this important area.
  4. Students must complete a minimum of 27 units in Segment II. Students on the six-unit system pattern for the Physical and Biological Sciences Area must make up any unit deficiencies in this Area by selecting additional course work in Segment II.

 

Physical and Biological Sciences Area – PBS (9 units)

Specific Requirements

Freshman Student Pattern

  1. Students must complete nine units in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  2. Students must complete one course in Category A (three units minimum), one course in Category B (three units minimum), and a third course in either Category A, B, or C, if necessary in order to complete nine units minimum.
  3. No more than six of the nine minimum units may have the same departmental prefix.
  4. At least one course designated L/F (laboratory or fieldwork) must be selected.

Transfer Student Pattern

  1. Students must complete one course in Category A (three units minimum), one course in Category B (three units minimum), and a third course in either Category A, B, or C. A third course is not required of students whose ASE or DARS indicates rights to the six-unit system pattern for the Physical and Biological Sciences Area. However, students on the six-unit system pattern must make up any deficiencies in the 27-unit minimum for Segment II by selecting additional course work in Segment II.
  2. At least one course must fulfill the laboratory or fieldwork (L/F) requirement.

Student Learning Outcomes have been developed for every area of General Education and a link to them can be found on the General Education website.

 

Upper Division General Education — 9 units minimum

General Requirements

Students must:

  1. Begin their upper division General Education coursework no earlier than the semester they achieve upper division standing and have completed a course in Area A4 with a C- or better. (60 units minimum)
  2. Complete at least 9 units of upper division General Education course work in residence at SF State
  3. Complete one of two pathways for upper division General Education: Topical Perspectives or Study Abroad.
  4. Complete the equivalent of one 3-unit course in each of the three domains of knowledge: Physical/Life Sciences (UD-B), Arts/Humanities (UD-C) and Social Sciences (UD-D).

 

Overlay Requirements

Overlay courses fulfill graduation requirements, but do not have specific unit requirements. They are meant to ensure that students take at least one course in areas that the campus feels are important to graduates of our university. There are four overlay requirements that students must meet: American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM), Environmental Sustainability (ES), Global Perspectives (GP) and Social Justice (SJ). Overlay requirements that are met in the upper division GE courses listed below are indicated after the course title.

 

Topical Perspectives

Upper Division GE courses are organized around themes called Topical Perspectives. Students are encouraged to complete all three courses within one Topical Perspective, although it is not required. A brief description of each topic is given before its course list.

 

Topical Perspectives course lists

Creativity, Innovation and Invention

Students will explore significant acts of creativity, innovation, and/or invention along with the processes that lead to them and their consequences. Some courses may provide an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge through one or more creative media, modes of expression, or methods of discovery. Creativity, Innovation and Invention courses address such subjects as principles and models that give rise to scientific and technological breakthroughs; the origins and nature of artistic or literary creativity; social/political experiments; creative resistance and transformation; historical, social, cultural, and economic forces that influence creativity and invention; creativity and invention during periods of censorship or in societies that discourage free thought and expression; and the impact on societies, cultural traditions, or environmental factors of major innovations in various fields of human endeavor.

 

Students wishing to focus on the topic of Creativity, Innovation and Invention should take one course from each domain.
