Department of Liberal Studies
The Liberal Studies major provides a rich, rigorous, cross-disciplinary liberal arts program of study.
There are two programs in the major:
The Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) is for students intending to become teachers who wish to combine subject matter preparation for elementary teaching with coursework leading to a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Graduates of this program earn a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies and a California Level I Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (K-8).
Track I is for students who seek subject matter preparation for careers in elementary education. Graduates of this program earn a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies and may apply to a credential program at a later time. Students in the Track I program have the opportunity to complete a concentration in a selected area of study.
IMPORTANT: Admission Under Impaction, for more details, refer to Impaction Criteria.
