Topics for Liberal Studies Students Interested in Credential Programs
Liberal Studies Blended
Liberal Studies Blended students have the opportunity to begin a Multiple Subject (elementary) or Education Specialist (special education) credential program early within the bachelors degree. In order to determine if students qualify to begin the program in this way, it is important to schedule an appointment with a Liberal Studies Advisor. The advisor will review all coursework to determine the best plan of action for each individual student. Some students will elect to graduate first and begin the credential program after the degree is granted, as a post baccalaureate student.
Once it is determined if a student will begin the credential program before or after the bachelors degree, the advisor will provide information regarding deadlines for graduation, and the credential admission requirements and process. The discussion of these time-lines will include filing for graduation and major approval, and detailed explanation for all prerequisite requirements in the credential packet and post baccalaureate admission.
It is important to discuss your graduation and credential plans with your advisor one year or more prior to graduation so that you have an opportunity to meet all requirements by necessary deadlines.
