Behavioral and Social Sciences Division
This degree is designed for students who wish to earn a multiple-subject teaching credential authorizing them to teach in grades K-5. Students will study a broad range of subjects to prepare them for teaching, including English, mathematics, science, social science, visual and performing arts, and human development. Competencies will be assessed regularly through projects, examinations, laboratory experiments, and presentations. Program assessment will be conducted by tracking student placement in teacher preparation programs at the university level.
Majoring in Liberal Studies will afford students the opportunity to complete the first two years of lower division coursework for their intended transfer institution and, depending upon the program selected, up to 45 hours of the required fieldwork for the credential.
