In the classroom with young pupils

The Liberal Studies Blended Program blends or integrates three elements—the General Education program, the courses required in the liberal studies major, and the courses required for teacher preparation—which can result in a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential or Educational Specialist Credential.

All liberal studies students complete the same program of 99-103 units of general education and major courses but then have several ways in which they may complete their degree. For those pursuing a Multiple Subject or Educational Specialist Credential, most of the credential courses may be included in a carefully planned four-year program.

As teacher education programs are subject to state and system legislative control, it is recommended that students interested in the credential consult the Education Student Services Center of the Kremen School of Education and Human Development for current program requirements.
