Integrated Teacher Education Programs (ITEP) - These pathways combine 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 the following pathways are accelerated and require 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 Traditional Pathway.

- Integrated Bilingual Elementary Education Concentration - BA + Preliminary Elementary Education Credential with Bilingual Authorization (4.5 years for freshman & 2.5 years for transfer students*)
