Statement of Reasons
for Amendment of
Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Section 40405.1

​This item proposes amending California State University General Education - Breadth Requirements (40405.1) to include a new 3 semester-unit (4 quarter-unit), lower division requirement in Ethnic Studies and Social Justice. To accommodate this new requirement while retaining the current number of units in CSU General Education Breadth, 3 semester units (4 quarter units) would be redistributed from the lower-division requirements in Title 5 Section 40405.1 a (4), commonly known as Area D-Social Science. As a result, 6 lower-division semester-units (8 lower division quarter units) would remain in Area D – Social Science that includes human social, political, and economic institutions and behavior and their historical background. The 3 semester units (4 quarter units) at the upper-division in Area D Social Science remain unchanged.
