Liberal Studies B.A. with Blended Elementary Teacher Education Program
Liberal Studies B.A. with Elementary Teacher Education Program
Blended Elementary Teacher Education Program (BETEP) in Liberal Studies/Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, which leads to a BA in Liberal Studies and a multiple subject teaching credential, allowing you to teach in a K-8 classroom. This two-phase program, approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC), can be completed in four and a half years, if followed precisely. In brief, the blended program combines the courses that prepare you in the subjects you will teach in elementary school (the liberal studies major) with the courses that teach you how to teach (the credential courses). You will also have multiple experiences in area schools to help you link the course work with the practice of teaching. With effective planning, undergraduates begin the pre-professional phase of the program in the freshman year and can become eligible to apply for the professional phase by the end of the sophomore year. During the pre-professional phase, the program is designed to provide some knowledge about teaching and some experience in schools that will introduce you to the career of teaching. During the professional phase of the program, your schedule is closely prescribed. You will be part of a cohort of 25 - 30 students, all of whom will be taking a core of courses together at designated times. The blended curriculum is designed so that some of your Liberal Studies subject matter courses are combined with and connected to teacher credential course work.
