Liberal Studies BA

The Liberal Studies (LS) B.A. program is designed for students who desire to become elementary or special education teachers. There are different pathways to choose from, depending on your interests:

LS BA Pathway - By default, all students are considered to be in this pathway upon entering the Liberal Studies major.

LS BA + Credential Pathway - This pathway combines the requirements for the Liberal Studies degree and credential courses within one cohesive program that allows students to finish their BA and credential in less time. As such, please know that this option requires more units per semester, and requires students to commit to a prescribed course sequence. *Deviating from the structured sequence may result in loss of program eligibility, and require students to be placed back in the LS BA Pathway.

  • Integrated Bilingual Elementary Education Concentration - LS BA + Elementary Education Credential with Bilingual Authorization
  • Integrated Special Education Concentration - LS BA + Special Education Credential
  • Integrated Elementary Education Concentration - LS BA + Elementary Education Credential
