Lower Division Course Requirements

Community College Course Equivalents

Note: This major accepts the AS-T in Early Childhood Education (ECE) (SB 1440 degree) for transfer. We recommend transfers complete the following articulated courses when course choices for the AS-T in Early Childhood Education (ECE) are available. We strongly encourage students to take courses which clear the American Institution requirement and 2nd semester/quarter of English composition as part of their CSU GE or IGETC requirements for the AS-T degree (doing so will increase greater choice in the 60 units of SJSU course work to be taken after transfer).

There are two main program options for the BA in Child and Adolescent Development, Plan A and Plan B.

The following option is Plan B:

This program provides a strong foundation in child and adolescent development and could be the basis for a variety of careers that involve work with or about children. Plan B is also appropriate for students intending to do graduate study in child development and related fields. For more information about the department please visit www.sjsu.edu/chad

The approved courses for each area can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU GE-Breadth Certification Courses" for your college. Many of these courses can be double counted to meet the major requirements shown above, so choose your courses wisely. Please see your college counselor/advisor to review your general education in order to receive FULL OR PARTIAL CERTIFICATION PRIOR TO TRANSFER to San José State University.
