Graduation Requirements for Undergraduates

A new set of requirements for the Baccalaureate degree (including General Education) at San Francisco State began in Fall 2014. The description and links below are intended to provide information for students, advisors, faculty and staff about the new requirements.

What is General Education?

General Education is intended to provide the knowledge, skills, experiences, and perspectives that will enable SF State students to expand their capacities to take part in a wide range of human interests and activities; to confront personal, cultural, moral, and social problems that are an inevitable part of human life; and to cultivate both the requisite skills and enthusiasm for lifelong learning. The General Education program at SF State is based on the requirements of the CSU, which are based on AAC&U LEAP outcomes, intended to provide a broad, liberal education to all of our students.
