Liberal Studies Teacher Preparation - Traditional

The Liberal Studies Teacher Preparation (LSTP) major provides a rich, rigorous, cross-disciplinary liberal arts program of study in education. We prepare ethical and social justice oriented teachers who create relevant and transformative educational experiences, attuned to students’ academic, racial, cultural, linguistic, social, and emotional needs.

This major, offered by the Department of Humanities, is designed for students interested in teaching in elementary school or middle school. LSTP satisfies San José State University’s requirements for a BA in Liberal Studies and is a program approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) for waiver of the subject matter examination (CSET for Multiple Subjects) required to earn a teaching credential.
