ChAD Course Roadmap
Is there an order I should follow in taking ChAD requirements?
The answer to this question is a little complicated, but it's not rocket science. It matters what academic level you are. Here are some guidelines that should be helpful.
If you are a freshman or sophomore:
- Make an appointment to see a deparment advisor as soon as possible.
- Complete all the Core GE requirements. If your goal is to complete the subject matter prep curriculum, Plan A, see a department advisor to discuss GE course options.
- Learn how to run your degree progress report and run it every semester.
- Take these lower division (freshman/sophomore) courses required for the major:
- ChAD 60 also meets GE Area E
- ChAD 67 also meets GE Area E
- PSYC 1 also meets GE Area D
- In addition to a GE Area B4 math concepts course, take any research methods or statistics course (e.g., ChAD 101, SOCS 15, or STAT 95)
- MATH 12 also meets GE Area B4 (for students who will follow Plan A)
If you are a junior and have completed all or most of the above requirements:
- If you have not yet met with a deparment advisor immediately make an appointment.
- As soon as you have passed the WST, enroll in ChAD or LLD 100W.
- After earning a passing grade on the WST, start taking your upper division GE requirements, SJSU Studies.
- Complete courses in the ChAD degree requirements in any order you want except for ChAD 159 (Plan A) or ChAD 160 (Plan B) and ChAD 195.
- Check to see that you are meeting all the graduation requirements.
- Apply for graduation one year before you expect to be finished.
If you are a senior and have completed all or most of the above requirements:
- Take ChAD 159 (Plan A) or ChAD 160 (Plan B) and ChAD 195.
- Complete any remaining graduation requirements.
At any level:
- Whenever you are uncertain about what courses you should be taking, see a ChAD advisor.
