Because campuses of San Francisco State University are located within the territories of the Ohlone peoples and the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (the Coastal Miwok and Southern Pomo peoples), we recommend students consider AIS 160 or AIS 420 when selecting their electives.

At least six units of electives should be upper division.
