Completion of Concentration I (Language and Culture) of the Italian major meets the subject matter competence requirement for the Single Subject Preliminary Credential in Italian. Prospective students should consult the undergraduate Italian Advisor and the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Program Advisor early to plan their program.
In addition to meting the subject matter competence requirement for the Preliminary Credential, prospective teachers of Italian are also required to complete 44 units of professional preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program, including student teaching. Students may begin the professional preparation courses as early as the junior year. With careful planning, it is possible to complete all of the credential program courses, except for student teaching, as an undergraduate. Courses may also be completed as a post-baccalaureate student. Refer to the Single Subject Teacher Education section of this Catalog or the Single Subject Credential Program website (www.ced.csulb.edu/single-subject) for a description of the professional preparation requirements, courses, and application procedures.
Same as for the major in Concentration I (Italian Language and Culture) of the Italian Program.
