AD-T Students can finish their Degree in Two Years

Students who transfer from California Community College with an AD-T (Associate's Degree for Transfer), such as an AA-T in Social Justice, can complete their major in ethnic studies in two years!

The California Promise Act is a law that guarantees you can complete your degree in a similar program within two years.

The graduation requirement for San Francisco State Studies is Waived! All other SFSU students must complete one course each in

  • American Ethnic & Racial Minorities (AERM)
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Global Perspectives
  • Social Justice

The classes you take will prob'ly cover these areas anyway, but its good to know you have a guarantee!

These Roadmaps provide your education plan to earn a BA in Ethnic Studies in two years:

If you took ethnic studies courses at your transfer institution--in African American Studies, Black Studies, Chicana/o Studies, Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, La Raza Studies, LALS, History, English, Sociology, Music, Dance, or Ethnic Studies--you may already have completed some lower-division requirements for your major!  Contact the Ethnic Studies Advising Center and request a transfer transcript evaluation to see what lower-division requirements you may have already met. All five major programs have articulation agreements with California Community Colleges.
