Preparing well-rounded future elementary/special education teachers

The Liberal Studies Program at CSUDH is an interdisciplinary undergraduate major designed primarily for students who intend to become an elementary or special education teacher or to pursue related graduate work. Courses leading to the B.A. in Liberal Studies focus on the subject areas taught in elementary schools as well as professional preparation and early fieldwork. The Liberal Studies degree from CSUDH provides an excellent entry into our Teacher Education and Special Education Programs so students can earn preliminary teaching credentials that are required by California public schools. The program is a California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) approved Elementary Subject Matter Preparation Program (ESM).
