ICP Overview

The Integrated Credential Program provides students with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Liberal Studies from the College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral & Social Sciences and a Multiple Subject Credential from the School of Education. The Integrated Credential Program consists of themed semesters of upper-division and post-baccalaureate courses that are taken across the colleges. It includes all the upper division courses required for the Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Major in Liberal Studies and all the coursework required for a Multiple Subject Credential from the School of Education.

Each semester students take 9-15 units of required core courses as a cohort. The core courses are offered in blocks each semester, and students take all courses in the block. The core courses include subject matter courses required for the Liberal Studies Major paired with the appropriate pedagogy courses for the Multiple Subject Credential. The underlying principle of the Integrated Program is for students to study subject matter during the same semester as they study how to teach that subject matter.
