Urban Learning Program

Welcome to the Urban Learning Program!

The Urban Learning Program is undergraduate major for students wishing to earn a bachelor’s degree and teaching credential at the same time, and to be prepared to teach in the diverse schools of urban Greater Los Angeles. Teaching in an urban environment we offer a fast-paced 4-year Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP):  entering freshman and transfer students earn a bachelor’s degree and either (1) a Multiple Subject (elementary education) credential, (2) Education Specialist (special education) internship credential, or (3) both a multiple subject and education specialist credentials (in an accelerated dual credential program).

Urban schools demand well-prepared and culturally sensitive teachers.  Students in the Urban Learning major learn to confront the stereotypes about urban schools and to act on the challenges of the urban environment in order to become agents of change.  Our students build on the strengths and advantages of the urban community.
