University Majors

California State University, Sacramento
Liberal Studies B.A.

Liberal Studies B.A. The Liberal Studies program is a multidisciplinary major designed for students who intend to become K-8 teachers in California. The program has been submitted for approval by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The largest portion of the major comprises the core section, with courses in reading, language and literature, mathematics, natural science, history and social sciences, visual and performing arts, physical education, human development and health. In addition, the major requires a concentration, that is a 12-unit area of focus in which the student can develop knowledge in a discipline of special interest.

The Liberal Studies major is a complex program requiring early and continuing contact with an advisor. Students must complete 120 units and meet the University foreign language requirement in order to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Students are urged to obtain advice as early as possible to avoid delays in the completion of these requirements. The Liberal Studies Program Director and faculty and staff advisors are located in Lassen Hall 2008, (916) 278-6342. Early planning is also strongly advised to prepare students to apply to the professional education program. Details about multiple subject credential programs and regular information sessions are provided by the Teacher Preparation and Credentials office in Eureka Hall 216, (916) 278-6403.
