Become a teacher and change the world!
Students who plan to become teachers should strongly consider choosing the Teacher Preparation or Early Childhood Education options of the Liberal Studies major. With a grade of "C" or better in coursework, Liberal Studies majors can now teach in elementary school without taking the CBEST and CSET exams. For information on meeting subject matter competency through coursework, see the instructions and form for Multiple Subject content knowledge here.
When students complete the B.A. in Liberal Studies, they may apply for the Multiple Subject Teaching Credential Program offered by the Teacher Education Department, a 1-year post-bac program starting in Summer term every year. After completing the Credential Program, they are qualified for the California Teaching Credential for teaching in PK-8 elementary schools in California.
The PK-3 Specialist Instructional Credential authorizes the holder to teach all subjects in a self-contained general education classroom setting and to team teach or to regroup students across classrooms, in preschool through grade three. Majors in the ECE concentration with 24 ECE units receive this authorization automatically with the MS credential.
