majors and Programs
Education And Liberal Studies
The Education Department offers state-approved credential programs for both elementary and secondary teachers. Prospective elementary teachers typically complete the Liberal Studies major administered by the department. Prospective secondary teachers major in the field they wish to teach. Careful personal advising, individually-selected mentors in the schools, and field supervision by experienced full-time faculty all contribute to a thoroughly professional, highly practical preparation for teaching. With careful planning, early deciders can complete the bachelors degree and the credential program in four years. Candidates may complete Student Teaching requirements in Santa Barbara or through our partner school in Costa Rica.
