Electives and Other Courses
Close work with the advisor will enable majors to design a comprehensive study plan for their entire CSULB experience and for life-long learning. General Education courses and electives should be chosen to coordinate with the major.
Single Subject Teaching Credential in Italian
Completion of Concentration I (Language and Culture) of the Italian major meets the subject matter competence requirement for the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Italian. Prospective students should consult the undergraduate Italian Advisor and the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Credential Program Advisor early to plan their program.
In addition to meeting the subject matter competence requirement for the Teaching Credential, prospective teachers of Italian are also required to complete 45 units of professional preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program, including student teaching. Students may begin the professional preparation courses as early as the junior year. With careful planning, it is possible to complete all of the credential program courses, except for student teaching, as an undergraduate. Courses may also be completed as a post-baccalaureate student. Refer to the Single Subject Teacher Education section of this catalog or the website (www.ced.csulb.edu/single-subject) for a description of professional preparation requirements, courses, and application procedures.
