Liberal Studies is one of the largest majors at SDSU and provides a rich academic foundation for meeting a wide range of future goals, both within the field of education and beyond. Core coursework spans communications and critical thinking, American institutions, math and science, humanities, social and behavioral sciences, education fieldwork, and more.
After completing pre-major requirements, students at the upper-division level choose to focus in either literacy, mathematics, or science with optional additional courses in a range of topics including performing arts, linguistics, special and bilingual education.
The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies provides students with a multidimensional education in a variety of disciplines. Many students choose a major in Liberal Studies as undergraduate preparation for subsequent careers in elementary and/or middle school education. Others choose to pursue graduate studies, non-teaching careers in education, and a variety of other career pathways.
