About

The Humanities program of San Francisco State University offers students understanding of the creative practices, cultural values, and insights of diverse human communities, past and present.

Overview

The Humanities program of San Francisco State University is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes the integrative study of culture, ideas, and the arts, with special concern for the questions of value—moral, intellectual, cultural, and aesthetic—that are inherent in major human expressions. The program requires 30 units of coursework, which includes core courses, electives, and the culminating experience (thesis or exam).

Career paths

The Liberal Studies major prepares students for future employment in a variety of fields, including education, government or public service, the arts, management, communications, humanities, and social sciences, and work involving multicultural communities. The teacher preparation emphasis provides the broad academic background necessary for teaching in an elementary classroom and as part of a student’s preparation for the CSET Multiple Subjects (California Subject Examinations for Teachers).  Additionally, LS students can take course-work satisfying the multiple-subject elementary subject matter waiver requirements, which replaces the CSET exams for entering a credential program (interested students should consult an LS adviser).  The major is also appropriate preparation for various professional and graduate programs such as business, counseling, law, librarianship, medicine, and for disciplinary or interdisciplinary graduate programs.
