Enrollment Information for 401 & 475

SCED 401 A Process Approach to Science

Fall & Spring SCED 401 Registration

If you would like to register for SCED 401 but receive a message that states you have not met the prerequisites, please call our office at (562) 985-4801. Often students who have taken one of the prerequisites at another school or who are currently taking one of the prerequisite courses cannot register for the class without department consent. As long as you will have met the pre-reqs by the time the course starts, we are happy to issue you a permit that will enable you to register for the class. Permits are issued on a first come first serve basis. Please provide a copy of your unofficial transcripts to the department office for review.

Summer SCED 401 Registration (Not Being Offered at This Time)

There is one section of SCED 401 that is offered every summer (seminar and lab combined). Summer enrollment for SCED 401 is done on an application basis through the department of Liberal Studies. Liberal Studies will review all applications, confirm that prerequisites have been met, and issue permits to students. If you would like to take this course, please contact the Liberal Studies Department at (562) 985-4228.

SCED 475 Teaching and Learning Science K-8

Fall & Spring SCED 475 Registration

SCED 475 is open for registration to students in the Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP). In the fall and spring semesters, there is one section (seminar and activity) that is initially set aside for students that are student teaching during that semester and this section will be only be available by Department Consent. If you are student teaching and you need to take SCED 475 at the same time, please contact the Multiple Subject Credential program and make sure you are on the list to take the student teaching section of this class. The MSCP office can be reached at (562) 985-4508. The other sections of SCED 475 are open for registration and do not require department consent.

Summer SCED 475 Registration (Not Being Offered at This Time)

There is one section of SCED 475 that is offered every summer (seminar and activity). Initially the class is Department Consent only to allow registration for fall student teachers. Once those students have been permitted, the department consent restriction is removed and any students in the Multiple Subject Credential program can register.

If you have any questions regarding SCED 401 or SCED 475, you may contact our office at (562) 985-4801.
