Teacher Preparation Program

Teacher Preparation Program

The LMU Secondary Teacher Preparation Program in Social Science is designed for students who are seeking history and social science teaching positions in grades 6-8 or 9-12 in school settings that are departmentalized.

This program includes courses both in the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts and the School of Education, and it leads towards the 2042 Preliminary Single-Subject Teaching Credential granted by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

Students are able to complete the LMU Secondary Teacher Preparation Program in Social Science at the same time that they complete a B.A. degree with a major either in History or Political Science. The LMU Secondary Teacher Preparation Program in Social Science has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
