Semester Catalog 2017-2018

G.E. Upper Division Courses


Students are required to complete 9 units of upper division general education courses distributed across the three areas (Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences**) as part of the General Education program. Completion of the lower division basic subjects requirement is prerequisite to all upper division general education courses, as well as completion of any additional lower division general education course that may be required as a prerequisite. Courses used to meet upper division general education requirements may not be used for a major.

Students are required to complete two courses (six units) certified as diversity (d) courses. At least one of these courses must focus on issues of race and ethnicity (re) and their intersectionality with other social categories that structure inequality in society. These courses can be completed either at the lower division or upper division level from among courses satisfying G.E. requirements.

Students who have completed the upper division requirement are deemed to be “G.E. satisfied” at the upper division level.  

NOTES: Courses with the course number preceded by the designation (d) indicate those approved to meet the Diversity requirement and those with an (re) prefix satisfy the Race and Ethnicity requirement.

**Temporary Change: FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS with the GE Catalog Year of Fall 2016 and beyond: The three GE Upper Division courses may be taken from ANY of the three breadth areas.

B. Natural Sciences and Quantitative Reasoning (3 units total)


C. Arts and Humanities (3 units total)


D. Social Sciences (3 units total)
