The B.A. in Education Sciences is not a professional degree. However, graduates are well prepared to pursue teacher training (see UC Irvine School of Education M.A.T. program). Students interested in teaching elementary grades will benefit from completing the major with a specialization in Early Childhood Learning and Development, or Children’s Learning and Development. Students interested in teaching middle or high school are encouraged to meet with a Student Affairs Officer to combine the major with a minor or second major, aiming for proficiency in the subject they plan to teach. All students in the Education Sciences major are required to complete a minimum of 40 fieldwork hours in an educational setting.
