WANT TO BECOME A TEACHER? CHOOSE CSU CHANNEL ISLANDS!

This college has an ITEP program that allows for teaching students to try and get their degrees and credential at the same time to save time and money. It's also surrounded by farmland while I'm from the city so the change of scenery is awesome.


Course Curriculum - 

I love my curriculum. All of my prerequisite courses are related to my major, for example, Mathematics for Elementary Teachers. Having all the prerequisites be geared toward my major makes the decision to become a teacher easier because you'll know right away if it is or isn't for you. Also, you get to have classes with other liberal studies majors with similar interests as you.
