University Catalog Listing for Liberal Studies

Those interested in applying to, or declaring their major as Liberal Studies are encouraged to visit an advisor for walk-in advising.

Two program options are available:

Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, BA

120 Units

The Liberal Studies BA is our traditional teacher education program where students complete their Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies. After completion of their B.A, they may continue their education as a post-bac student and complete a teaching credential at CSULB or at another university.

Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, ITEP

135 Units

The Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) combines the study of academic subject matter for elementary school teaching with professional preparation and student teaching. Successful completion of the traditional ITEP pathway includes both a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Another option in ITEP includes the Urban Dual Credential Program option (UDCP), where students may complete a Bachelor of Arts degree, Multiple Subject Credential, and Education Specialist Credential in a structured cohort model. This program follows standards established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
