Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) students will engage with the Education Program through rigorous curriculum rooted in theory, as well as enriching dialogue that will both challenge constructs and push students to grow. The Education requirements are also deeply rooted in fieldwork and clinical experiences that provide opportunities to implement the theories and content being learned. Through the Education Program Requirements, students in the Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) major can earn a Preliminary Multiple Subjects Credential. Students interested in teaching in bilingual settings may also add a Bilingual Authorization to their Preliminary Credential. The Bilingual Authorization is offered in Spanish, Mandarin, or Cantonese.

Per Federal Regulation 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v), all LMU School of Education credential/licensure programs meet the California state requirements as specified by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and for the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences, as appropriate. The institution (LMU) has not made a determination as to whether these credential, licensure, and professional preparation programs meet the requirements of states outside of California. If you are interested in practicing outside the state of California, it is recommended that you contact the respective licensing entity of that state to seek information or guidance regarding their licensure and credential requirements in advance to allowing appropriate planning.

5

Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) students fulfill the Multiple Subjects student teaching requirement for the teaching credential by completing EDTL 526 Elementary Teaching Seminar - Student Teachers and EDTL 524 Clinical Supervision 2 - Undergraduate Elementary Student Teachers, which are applied toward both the semester hour requirement for the baccalaureate degree in Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) and the requirements for the credential within the state of California. Whereas the B.A. degree in Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) and California teaching credential are separate, many requirements for the credential are earned through fulfilling the B.A. requirements, including student teaching, where this is met through elective units taken as EDTL 526 Elementary Teaching Seminar - Student Teachers and EDTL 524 Clinical Supervision 2 - Undergraduate Elementary Student Teachers.

6

In addition to the above requirements, all Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) students complete a minimum of 12 semester hours of coursework in a chosen area of concentration, which represents a subject area generally taught in elementary schools or a related area of study. With careful planning, the concentration can constitute most, if not all, of an LMU minor. Students must declare a concentration by the fall semester of their sophomore year. See the Bulletin for qualifying concentrations and their specific requirements.

7

Credential candidates with the demonstrated requisite language proficiency can earn a Bilingual Authorization to teach in either Spanish, Mandarin, or Cantonese in an elementary classroom. The authorization requires students to complete part of their coursework and student teaching in a bilingual classroom. The Bilingual Authorization may contribute to meeting other requirements as well, such as those for particular concentrations, including the concentration in Bilingualism and Biliteracy. See the Director of Bilingual Program if interested in earning a Bilingual Authorization.

Note

* Starred courses to be taken after formal acceptance into the LMU School of Education. Acceptance into these programs requires a cumulative GPA of 3.0.

Concentrations

Bilingualism and Biliteracy

12-13 semester hours

The Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) concentration in Bilingualism and Biliteracy is designed to allow credential candidates with the requisite language proficiency to also earn the Bilingual Authorization to teach bilingually, which at LMU currently is offered in Spanish, Mandarin, or Cantonese. Required coursework includes the study of methodology, culture, and the processes of bilingualism and biliteracy. Students earning the authorization are required to do half of their student teaching in a bilingual setting as well. The required authorization courses follow either the Spanish or Mandarin or Cantonese track for a total of 9 semester hours. For students earning the concentration in bilingualism and biliteracy, an additional upper division course, approved by the Director of the Bilingual Program at LMU will be required, for a total of 12-13 semester hours.

English

16 semester hours

Believing that literature is a profound expression of human experience, the English Department uses a range of critical methods to introduce students to literatures in English from a variety of cultural traditions. The course work reveals the art form’s creative beauty, strategies for representing the human experience, and its power to shape the reader. The English Department encourages an understanding of the critical and creative union of reading and writing as fundamental to the processes of developing the human self. Through their imaginations, students who concentrate or minor in English interact with language and literature, thereby encountering another equally open and attentive mind: that of the writer whose work they are reading.

History

12 semester hours

The study of history is integral to Loyola Marymount University’s mission as a university in the Jesuit/Marymount, Catholic, and liberal arts traditions. It contributes to “the encouragement of learning” through intellectually demanding courses that cultivate an understanding of both familiar and unfamiliar pasts and cultures. It educates “the whole person” by focusing on a multiplicity of perspectives and experiences, and by attempting to understand the lived, bodily experience of the “whole person” in the past. History courses ground discussions of “the service of faith and the promotion of justice” by putting these ideas in context, showing change over time, and emphasizing how today’s world evolved out of the contingent actions of and interactions between individuals and groups of people. The study of history enables the student to examine cultures, religions, and the interconnections among peoples and societies as complex historical phenomena, human structures open to historical interpretation and analysis. Historical perspective thus provides insight into the sequence of events, into the relationship of events at diverse times and places, and into the dynamism of structures and beliefs that can otherwise appear fixed or predetermined. The study of history therefore also leads to greater sensitivity to and awareness of cultural differences and similarities, as well as conflicting interpretations of events.

Dr. David Hardy, dhardy@lmu.edu, 310.338.5294, UH 4745

Science

18 semester hours

The concentration in Science was designed to enable Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) majors with an interest in science to create an individualized program of study around a central theme. Each student will work with the Liberal Studies Science Advisor to identify an area of interest and formulate a curricular plan that provides each student with a strong foundation and enables him/her to develop a more in-depth understanding of the topic of interest by taking at least one and in many cases two upper division courses.

Satisfactory completion of the concentration in science will require that each student complete a minimum of 18-19 semester hours in one or more of the science disciplines. At least 3 of these semester hours must be upper division.

All concentrations in science will include 4 science core semester hours from SCEM 270 Experimenting in Science I and 3 science education internship hours. The remaining 11-12 semester hours will form the core of the concentration in science and will reflect the central theme. The following examples are by no means exhaustive and are only provided to demonstrate the flexibility of the concentration; there is even room for flexibility within the samples below. Any student considering a concentration in science should make an appointment to discuss his/her options with the Liberal Studies Science Advisor as soon as possible to ensure adequate time to fulfill the requirements.

Teachers play a key role in the intellectual and social development of children, and the lessons they teach are important in determining the individual character, social responsibility, and future career paths of students. Sociology courses expose teachers to the distinctive perspectives, problems, and concerns of different persons and groups in society and suggest ways to resolve conflicts and produce more equitable and just relationships and communities. Sociology classes help teachers develop skills of creative problem solving, critical thinking, and collaborative interaction useful in the classroom and impart techniques of data collection and analysis which facilitate observation and evaluation of student performance.

2+2 Program with El Camino College

The Center for Undergraduate Teacher Preparation in the School of Education has partnered with El Camino College (ECC) to develop a teacher preparation pipeline for Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) students where programs are integrated and coursework is streamlined from initial matriculation at ECC, through program completion at LMU. The goal is to create a pipeline where students successfully complete two years at the Community College, transfer to LMU, and complete their major requirements and preliminary credential requirements within an additional two years.

Education and Learning Sciences (Liberal Studies) Model Four-Year Plan

The typical course load for an undergraduate student is 15-16 semester hours per semester. The following model represents a student who is completing a 15-semester-hour concentration, does not need to complete any prerequisites for required coursework, and is pursuing the 2042 Multiple Subject teaching credential. Students with larger concentrations, those required to take MATH 101 Algebra (or other prerequisite coursework), and/or those seeking credentials in Bilingual or Special Education may need to “overload” during some semesters and/or complete summer coursework. Please note that the model is provided as a guideline rather than a prescriptive course of study. Students will need to be flexible implementing the model plan, given variability of course availability and other potential scheduling issues in any given semester.
