Welcome to Liberal Studies

 

SDSU’s Liberal Studies major is designed for future elementary and middle school teachers. 


The Liberal Studies major prepares students to pursue a regular multiple subjects credential or other credential possibilities.  These possibilities include special education, a multiple subjects credential in bilingual education, and various middle school authorizations or credentials.


Coursework in the Liberal Studies major aligns with California’s education standards.  The courses are excellent preparation for the multiple subjects CSET exam, which is required for admission to California’s elementary education credential programs. Courses also provide multiple opportunities for students to gain field experience in various settings.
