ABOUT THE PROGRAM
All students majoring in liberal studies must declare their program pathway as either a Preliminary California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (K-8 elementary education) and/or a specific subject concentration. The subject concentrations include Child Development, English, History, and Psychology.
Students choosing to pursue a Preliminary California K-8 Multiple Subject Credential will complete an accredited program approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing based on the guidelines set forth in Senate Bill 2042 (2003). Successful graduates will be credentialed to teach all subjects in kindergarten through grade eight in self-contained classrooms in public and private schools in California. The Teacher Performance Expectations (TPEs) listed below are the basis for course content and assessment of candidate performance. They are introduced, practiced, and demonstrated in specific TEDU courses across the program.
