Program Description

Future elementary school teachers seeking a path to obtaining a multiple subject teaching credential in concert with their bachelor’s degrees, as well as those wishing to enter a separate post-baccalaureate credential program, may wish to consider a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies. The latter contingent of students can benefit from the Liberal Studies program within the major, while the former can achieve their objectives through the Integrated Teacher Education program.

Most degrees at California State University, Long Beach require students to complete a certain number of general education units in addition to coursework in their chosen discipline. The Liberal Studies major is different in that students complete their general education requirements concurrently with the major coursework.

These hours may be completed in either a middle school or elementary school setting.
