About

Liberal Studies is an exciting and intellectually challenging interdisciplinary major that provides students with a unique opportunity to acquire and integrate knowledge from the humanities, arts, the natural sciences. The California State University Fullerton students become well-rounded persons, critical thinkers, creatively problem solvers, and culturally sensitive citizen. 

Overview

At the heart of our education are the Liberal Studies Core Courses (30 units), which provide a thorough foundation in the arts & humanities, science, and social thought/science. In addition, students take one of two emphases (21 units). 

The Elementary Education Emphasis provides an excellent preparation for teaching diverse subjects in elementary schools and for being admitted to a multiple-subject teaching credential program. (Such admission requires passing the CSET, which 85% of our students do on their first attempt.) Under the Interdisciplinary Thematic Emphasis, students select a personalized set of courses devoted to the study of specific interdisciplinary themes, which can range from special education to pre-law to rock music.
