Segment III Clusters for Engineering GE

Note: The following page applies only to students entering prior to Fall 2014. Please refer to the General Education pages for other information.

The clusters which follow have been developed specifically for Engineering majors completing the Engineering version of SFSU's GE requirements for graduation.

  1. The general requirements for Segment III are printed on page 2 of your Academic Progress Record Worksheet.
  2. Select one cluster. Special Requirements listed below must be followed very carefully.

You must choose both a Category A class and a Category B course in order to complete the cluster that you select. Category A is a course with a humanities component and Category B is a course with a biological component (necessary since Segment II for Engineering majors lacks 3 units of biological science and 3 units of humanities and creative arts to which students subject to the University GE are held).
