The Liberal Studies Program at CSU East Bay aims to provide students with a solid liberal arts education, one that allows for both breadth of knowledge integrating arts, humanities, social science, and science disciplines regarding some major global issues, and specialization on an academic discipline or subject area.
The Liberal Studies Major provides students with a solid knowledge base and communication and analytical skills appropriate to many careers and occupations. The Teacher Preparation Option provides excellent preparation for K-6 teaching. The Liberal Arts Option provides well-rounded preparation for graduate work and law school, and for employment in business, non-profit, and government organizations.
Liberal Studies works closely with PACE (Program for Accelerated College Education) in offering the Liberal Studies major (Liberal Arts Option) for working adults with classes in evenings, weekends, or on-line.
