Liberal Studies                         Clip art of Super Grade A+ Teacher

The liberal studies program is dedicated to assisting students who plan a future as a K-12 teacher. Students attend lecture sections to discuss the educational system, including exposure to state standards for curriculum. In addition, liberal studies students are required to spend 3 hours per week in a K-8 setting, observing the teacher-student interaction and interacting with students themselves.  Liberal Studies 10 students must observe in a K-3 setting during the language arts block.  Liberal Studies 20 students must observe in a 4-8 setting during the math/science block.  Classes may be either self-contained or single subject.
