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.
**Community colleges are working to approve an AA-T in Ethnic Studies. Once it gets approved, SFSU College of Ethnic Studies will definitely accept it! In the mean time, we'll accept the AD-T in Social Justice Studies.
