About Catalog Year Requirements

It is important to be aware that there will be different requirements for Liberal Studies majors based on the catalog year when they entered the program.

To complete the major, students must fulfill the degree requirements for the major and emphasis described in the catalog in effect at the time they are accepted into the pre-major at SDSU (assuming continuous enrollment).

In general, your catalog year is the year you began at SDSU as a pre-Liberal Studies major. If you entered SDSU as another major, your major catalog year is the year you changed your major to Liberal Studies. Moving from a pre-major to the upper division major does not change your catalog year.

Don't consult your friends or fellow students to learn about your particular degree requirements. If they entered the program in a different year (or are pursuing a different emphasis), their requirements will be different from yours. Instead, it is very important that you follow the requirements of your particular Liberal Studies pathway, and that you complete the requirements based on the catalog year when you entered the program.
