SF State’s curriculum — embracing the local, regional and international — prepares students for an increasingly global culture in which they will influence contemporary spaces, media, and social interactions. We educate students for life in an increasingly complex world, rich with diversity and replete with challenges, in which they will make a difference by offering their vision to lead others.
