This was an outstanding year for our Liberal Studies Majors. This year saw 14 students complete the Liberal Studies major; of these, 10 completed the concurrent program of elementary teacher preparation (B.A. with all coursework required for the elementary credential). Also, 2 completed the Honors Program, 1 double majored in Liberal Studies and Religious Studies, and 1 graduated magna cum laude; 1 summa cum laude; 1 cum laude.
These young woman are already showing leadership promise. Whether the contribution is in the form of a children's literature book (plus lesson plans) submitted as an honors project or a student teacher tapped to provide a professional development workshop to veteran teachers on Common Core during her student teaching experience, these candidates will undoubtedly make their mark in the field of education.
