Liberal Studies Mark

Welcome to the Liberal Studies Program

Liberal Studies provides a broad academic program that encourages academic excellence, diversity, community, and collaboration. There are two tracks in the Liberal Studies Program, the Pre-Credential program, and the General Liberal Studies program. The pre-credential program is a multidisciplinary major designed for students who intend to become K-8 or special education teachers in California. Its purpose is to provide beginning teachers with a strong grounding in the wide ranging subject matter that will be needed to be effective teachers. The general program is designed for students who are interested in a multidisciplinary major, but who do not necessarily plan to become teachers.

The Liberal Studies Pre-Credential Program is in compliance with California Commission on Teacher Credentialing standards, and students who complete this major are waived from taking the California Subject Matter Examination (CSET).
