Complementary Studies Requirement for Majors

New requirement as of Fall 2014: Complementary Studies

"Bachelor of Arts students must complete at least twelve units of Complementary Studies outside of the primary prefix for the major. Students who complete two majors or a major and a minor automatically complete the Complementary Studies requirement. Details about Complementary Studies can be found in the Bulletin description for each B.A. degree. 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. These 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." http://bulletin.sfsu.edu/undergraduate-education/complementary-studies/

WGS students in the past have used the complementary studies requirement as a way to acquire a minor as well. Some popular minors with our students have been, but are not limited to, Ethnic Studies, BECA, Communications, and Comparative Literature. (http://bulletin.sfsu.edu/programs/)

It is important to note that some minor programs allow students to double count WGS courses. Please make sure you check with your minor department.
