Liberal Studies Major
The Liberal Studies major provides a rich, rigorous, cross-disciplinary liberal arts program of study.
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:
Liberal Studies Track I 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.
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 ITEP includes both a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. This program follows standards established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
Dept. Permission Required for L/ST Capstone Courses
In order to successfully enroll in L/ST 400, L/ST 404, or L/ST 471, students must follow the proper procedure to obtain permission for registration from the Department.
