California State University, East Bay
Liberal Studies B.A. - Elementary Teacher Preparation Option

The Liberal Studies Major aims to provide a rich educational experience through coursework in a broad range of academic disciplines. There are two tracks to the B.A. degree major in Liberal Studies. The Credential Track is designed for future elementary (K-8) teachers. The General Track is intended for those with other goals who desire a broad exposure to the arts, humanities, sciences, and social science fields that comprise a true liberal education. Differences between the two tracks are small, so that it is easy to change from one to the other. In either track, the student is guaranteed a breadth of academic experience, as well as depth in a single field. The Blended Liberal Studies/Credential Program offers selected students interested in a teaching career an opportunity for concurrent subject matter and professional preparation. See the "Blended Liberal Studies/Credential Program" section later in this chapter.

The broad-based, interdisciplinary nature of Liberal Studies provides a knowledge base and the communication and analytical skills appropriate to many careers and occupations. Hence, the Liberal Studies major is excellent preparation not only for teaching, but for graduate work, for law school, and for employment in business and government.
