BA - Liberal Studies, Concentration in Cross-Cultural Studies in Mexican and American Education
Cross-Cultural Studies in Mexican and American Education (CCSE) is an interdisciplinary major. This concentration provides future education professionals and scholars with a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural program of study in education and society. The concentration is designed to facilitate students' understanding of the impact of cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and economic backgrounds on schooling, both in Mexican and American contexts. It is designed to help students experience and understand a foreign culture, and to acquire the self-confidence, independence, and leadership qualities that result from studying abroad through the LA META Program in Querétaro, Mexico. Students majoring in CCSE may wish to work with youth in a variety of ways, including as a bilingual teacher.
The BA, Liberal Studies, Concentration in Cross-Cultural Studies in Mexican and American Education, is not accepting applications due to a US State Dept travel warning for Mexico, which prevents students from completing a year in the CSU IP study abroad program in Mexico (a program requirement).
