Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (120 units)

The Liberal Studies major provides a rich, rigorous cross-disciplinary liberal arts program of study. There are three programs in the major: 1) The Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) is for students intending to become teachers who wish to combine subject matter preparation for elementary teaching with coursework leading to a Multiple Subject teaching credential; 2) Track I is for students who seek subject matter preparation for elementary teaching as preparation for a post-baccalaureate credential program; 3) Track II is for students with more varied professional or career goals who prefer a sound generalist program to one requiring early specialization. The Track II program is in the process of being discontinued and is no longer admiting new students.

General Education and the Liberal Studies Major

The General Education requirements for students majoring in Liberal Studies are unique. The Liberal Studies program is not only an approved major, but also an approved alternate general education program. In completing the Liberal Studies major, students concurrently satisfy their general education requirements. Students changing to another major from Liberal Studies, however, will be subject to the standard university General Education requirements and will want to consult the Academic Advising Center for G.E. advising.

The Liberal Studies Program

The Liberal Studies Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) combines the study of academic subject matter for elementary school teaching with professional preparation and student teaching. Successful completion of ITEP includes both a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Multiple Subject teaching credential.

The program of study for the Liberal Studies Track I and Track II majors is composed of two parts: Core and Concentration.

Track I of the Liberal Studies program is designed for those students who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree to prepare them in the academic subject areas relevant to elementary and special education teaching. Track I is an approved pre-professional program of subject matter preparation consistent with the standards established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

Track II of the Liberal Studies program is designed for those students who seek a rich, non-specialized, multi-dimensional and cross-disciplinary course of study as a foundation for life-long learning, enlightened citizenship, and a wide range of academic and career opportunities. The Track II program is in the process of being discontinued and is no longer admiting new students.

INTEGRATED TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM

Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (code L/STBA04)

Multiple Subject Credential - Cross Cultural and Academic Development Emphasis (code 200)

The Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) combines the study of academic subjects aligned to California standards for the K-8 curriculum with professional preparation courses and field experiences leading to a Multiple Subject Credential.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive both a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and a Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential. Within the Integrated Teacher Education Program there are 107 units of required baccalaureate-level coursework and 28 units of credential-specific coursework.

Students in the ITEP program who do not advance to the Credential portion of the program will be eligible to receive a B.A. in Liberal Studies Track I and may apply for admission to the post-baccalaureate Multiple Subject Credential Program.

There are multiple pathways to the teaching profession. ITEP is designed for students who begin their undergraduate education at CSULB or who transfer into the University in pursuit of both a baccalaureate degree as well as a Multiple Subject teaching credential. Prospective credential candidates who already hold a bachelor’s degree, or who need information about other pathways and options in teacher credentialing, should refer to the sections of this catalog which describe programs in Teacher Education, Single Subject Teacher Education, and Educational Psychology, Administration and Counseling. Further information about teacher preparation programs can also be obtained from the College of Education at (562) 985-9259 or by e-mail: cedinfo@csulb.edu or online at www.ced.csulb.edu.

General Education and the Integrated Teacher Education Program

As with other Liberal Studies majors, students in the Integrated Teacher Education Program have unique General Education requirements. ITEP is not only an approved major, but an approved alternate general education program. ITEP students receive their General Education advisement within the Liberal Studies office. In completing ITEP, students concurrently satisfy their general education requirements. Students changing their major from ITEP to a major other than Liberal Studies, however, will be subject to the standard University General Education requirements and will want to consult the Academic Advising Center for G.E. advising.

The ITEP Curriculum

The ITEP curriculum has two interrelated components. Students complete required coursework in the ITEP Core and they complete coursework in the methodology of teaching, including student teaching. Admission to this final, credential portion of the program requires that students apply and be accepted into the Multiple Subject Credential Program at CSULB. In addition, a minimum of 125 hours of service learning, coordinated by the SERVE Program in the College of Education, must be completed prior to graduation. All courses in the ITEP core must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.

Admission to the Multiple Subject Credential Program

Prior to enrollment in EDEL 300, ITEP students must be formally admitted into the Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP). Students should apply to the MSCP during the semester prior to enrolling in EDEL 300. Admission to the MSCP requires that the candidate: 1) purchase the MSCP for ITEP Handbook; 2) complete EDEL 200; 3) attempt the California Basic Educational Skills (CBEST) examination; 4) attain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.67 or 2.75 in the last 60 units of study; 5) submit a portfolio which includes a SERVE evaluation as well as a typed personal statement describing why you have chosen teaching as a career, what you hope to accomplish as a teacher, and how you view the role of the teacher; 6) attend an interview panel; 7) submit a negative tuberculosis skin test or chest X-ray taken within the last three years. Note: The California Subject Examinations for Teachers: Multiple Subjects (CSET) must be passed to advance to student teaching. All ITEP credential courses must be completed with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and no individual grade lower than "C."

No concentration course may be taken Credit/No Credit. No course used to fulfill a core requirement may be used to fulfill a concentration requirement.

Students must gain approval for a concentration and curricular plan. Normally the proposal is submitted before the student begins to take courses in the concentration. Students declare a concentration by attending a concentration workshop. Students may sign up for a workshop at the Liberal Studies office. Subsequent modifications of the concentration curriculum must also be approved.

Bilingual Spanish-English

Subject preparation for a Multiple Subject Credential with a bilingual, cross-cultural, language and academic development (BCLAD) emphasis requires students to demonstrate proficiency in a targeted language and understanding of the culture of a targeted group. This concentration focuses on the Spanish language and Latino culture to be consistent with the requirements of the BCLAD emphasis in the CSULB credential program. The primary focus of the concentration is development of language skills. Students with demonstrated language proficiencies in reading, writing and speaking at an advanced level may seek to substitute additional culture studies for required language classes. Prior to proposing this concentration or completing any course work toward it, students should meet with the Spanish undergraduate advisor who will be able to determine language proficiencies. (The following Core classes are highly recommended for students proposing this concentration: CHLS 319 in Area IV, A, Group 3; ANTH 412I in Area IV, B, Group 3; EDP 301 in Area IV, Group 1b.)

In the process of discontinuance, no new students admitted.

Students in this track complete a Core program (87 units minimum) and a Concentration (24-32 units). The Track II program is both a major and an approved General Education program. Both General Education and major requirements are satisfied by completion of the Track II program. A minimum of six units of interdisciplinary course work (courses with an I suffix) must be completed in the major—in either the core, the concentration or a combination of both. Course work used to meet the specific requirements of the core may also be used to meet the specific requirements of a concentration to a maximum of 12 units of such “double counting” or “overlapping.” (Although one course may satisfy two requirements at the same time, the units earned apply to the total units required for the degree only once.) Minimum units for the Liberal Studies major, Track II, could vary from 99-119 units depending on choice of concentration and potential for overlapping core and concentration requirements.

The Track II Core consists of a minimum of 87 units distributed across seven areas: I. Language and Communication Studies (minimum 18 units); II. Natural Science and Mathematics (minimum 18 units); III. National and World Citizenship (minimum 18 units); IV. Social and Behavioral Science Foundations (minimum 9 units); V. Literary, Visual and Performing Arts (minimum 12 units); VI. Cultures, Values and Beliefs (minimum 9 units) and VII. Health Well-Being, Life-Management: (minimum 3 units). Only one course per core area may be taken Credit/No Credit within university maximum of 24 units overall and 12 at the upper division (300-400) level.

The Track II Concentration consists of 24-32 units of course work in a selected discipline. A minimum of 15 of the concentration units will be in upper division (300-400) course work with the exception of the Biology and Mathematics concentrations where only 12 upper division units are required. Only one concentration course may be taken Credit/No Credit.
