The Department of Special Education Resources for current students, which includes faculty advising, program road maps.

Faculty Advising

Faculty Advising is a critical part of your educational program at San Francisco State University. Your progress toward your selected degree, minor, certificate, or credential program will be significantly smoother with regular advising. All students enrolled in the programs offered by the Department of Special Education & Communicative Disorders should meet with an academic advisor every semester. A number of advising opportunities are available to students that include orientation each semester, group advising meetings and individual meetings by appointment.

Program Course Roadmaps

Through orientation, regular advising and knowing the handbook, students will have a clear knowledge of program requirements and sequence of courses and field work. The department has developed roadmaps with the faculty and chair, showing a suggested sequence for completion of the degree, minor, certificate or credential. The roadmap provides an individualized plan for each student to complete the degree, credential, or both. Changes in the roadmap may be made through regular consultation with a faculty advisor.

Recommended sequence for full-time enrollment; part-time students should focus on method courses
