This pattern is designed for students who want a broad liberal arts and sciences degree but are not interested in pursuing the teaching credential. Public school experience is not required for the non-credential pattern. It is important to see an advisor for help in planning your program. Normally, students selecting this pattern complete the following program:

The Liberal Studies lower- and upper-division major core program of 76 units; 12-15 units in an Area of Concentration; and 18 units or more for a minor. Students who select a second major of 30 units or more will fulfill the Area of Concentration requirements.

Electives Requirement:

To complete the total units required for the bachelor's degree, select additional elective courses from the total University offerings. You should consult with an advisor regarding the selection of courses which will provide breadth to your University experience and possibly apply to a supportive second major or minor.

Students should also check with their advisor on applying elective courses to requirements for authorizations which permit teaching in grades 7 through 9 in a departmentalized setting.

Students working toward a credential may use Professional Program prerequisite courses as elective units towards the Liberal Studies degree.

(a) Students who plan to enter the Bilingual or Tri-Placement Program must also take SPED 343 and EDTE 440.

(b) Students who plan to enter the Special Education Concurrent Program must complete the Special Education minor to satisfy all program prerequisites.

(c) Students who plan to enter all other Multiple Subject Programs meet the Introductory School Experience requirement by taking EDTE 255. They also must take EDTE 301 and EDTE 520.

Advising Requirement:

Advising is mandatory for all majors in this degree program. Consult your undergraduate advisor for specific information.
