Orientation

Orientation is required and the best introduction to all Liberal Studies majors, regardless if you are a first year student or transfer student from a local community college or four-year institution

The Liberal Studies program is a multidisciplinary major designed for students who intend to become K-8 teachers or special education teachers in California (if you wish to teach one subject in middle or high school, you want to major in the subject you wish to teach and then earn a single subject teaching credential good in middle and high school)

It is important as our requirements are unique and general advising will not be adequate. General education is integrated in the Liberal Studies program. Participation in orientation will give you a head start on your program and on a successful career at Sac State. Presentations by Liberal Studies advisors will cover the specific curricular requirements of the major, registration procedures, academic, and administrative requirements

Not only will general information be provided about the University, but this will be the only way to receive a specific and precise evaluation of the transcripts of your previous work - each attendee will receive an individual advising form based on your past/current course work (transcripts should be faxed to the Liberal Studies office, 278-6062 or emailed to actm@csus.edu. Our office does not have access to transcripts sent to Admissions. By the end of your orientation day students will know exactly what they need in order to complete your BA in Liberal Studies. In addition, a brief introduction to the Sacramento State Multiple Subject Teaching Credential Program will take place
