Mission Statement of the Liberal Studies Program

The program is housed in the College of Social Sciences & Interdisciplinary Studies and it is intended for individuals who wish to become multiple subject teachers. Its purpose is to educate beginning teachers who are well grounded in a wide-ranging subject matter that will prepare them, along with the professional training they will receive in the credential program, to become effective teachers. Conscious as we are of our location in a major urban center, with a highly diverse public school population, we take our guiding mission as a commitment to providing high-quality academic, pre-professional preparation for a diverse group of future teachers who will assume roles of effective teaching, mentoring, and leadership in California's classrooms. Academic excellence and commitment to the values of diversity, community, and collaboration distinguish the vision behind the Liberal Studies Program
