San Francisco State University Major Degree Roadmaps

A Degree Roadmap is a semester-by-semester guide to the course requirements necessary to complete a bachelor’s degree in a designated major. A Roadmap is designed to help students select classes that satisfy General Education (GE) requirements, major requirements, other all-university requirements and to graduate in four years. The Roadmap cannot replace consultation with an advisor in your major or an advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Center. You should always use your Degree Roadmap in conjunction with the Bulletin and your DARS report, ASE (if applicable), and transcript to select classes for an upcoming semester.
