The ITEP curriculum has two interrelated components. Students complete required coursework in the Liberal Studies Core and they complete ITEP Credential Coursework in the methodology of teaching, including student teaching. Admission to this final, credential portion of the program requires that students apply and be accepted into the Multiple Subject Credential Program at CSULB. In addition, a minimum of 125 hours of service learning, coordinated by the SERVE Program in the College of Education, must be completed prior to graduation. All courses in the Liberal Studies Core must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. All ITEP Credential Coursework must be completed with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and no individual grade lower than "C."
