This emphasis recognizes that teachers play a vital role in the development of children, introducing them to numbers, language, science, and social studies. Elementary teachers facilitate student learning through interactive class discussions, educational activities, “hands-on” learning, and one-on-one assistance. This emphasis offers a core of interdisciplinary and specialized courses that provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for communicating concepts to children, and an introduction to social, political and economic issues that influence the field of public education.CDES Advisory Committee
Learning Outcome(s):
  1. Students who complete this emphasis will use their understanding of young childrens' characteristics, needs and multiple interacting influences to create learning environments that are healthy, respectful, supportive, and challenging for all children. Since students will have experienced actual classrooms with actual children, they will decide if a career in teaching young children is right for them.

The Liberal Studies Major aims to provide a rich liberal art educational experience through selected courses from a wide range of academic disciplines.  The broad-based, interdisciplinary nature of Liberal Studies provides a solid well-rounded undergraduate educational experience, integrating knowledge from arts and humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, with analytical and communication skills well suited for many careers and professions.

This major can prepare students with either a specific or interdisciplinary focus in order to pursue similar majors at four-year institutions. Student should refer to the catalog of their prospective transfer institution and consult a counselor. General Education courses for the degree should be selected carefully to meet the requirements of the intended transfer institution.  For  further advice, consult the intended university and see the “major-to-major” articulation agreement between Gavilan College and that institution.

Learning Outcome(s):
  1. Student will be able to demonstrate a solid understanding of major contemporary global issues about individuals, society, and nature, by integrating interdisciplinary knowledge of humanities, social science, communication, and natural science. The student will also be able to apply methods of different disciplines to critically thinking about these issues.
  2. Student will be able to prepare for a variety of majors at four year institutions that Gavilan does not offer an Associate degrees for transfer. The flexibility of the degree allows for this preparation and at the same time complete a Gavilan degree.
