What major is best to choose for college students hoping to teach?
I want to teach 1st and 2nd grade and then after a while maybe High School, special education and Dance Team... I am currently majoring in Child Development... The school I will transfer to (CSUCI aka CSUChannel Islands, here in California) offers both Early Childhood Studies and Liberal Studies for students going into teaching... Some say I should stick with Child development, and some say Liberal Studies. I don't know which one is better for me. Even though I have done my research, I still can't figure this out. Any help here? And also, I would like to know, does anyone know this answer... Can you transfer before you get 60 units and continue your education at a four year college or is it required to get 60 units and sometimes plus to transfer? No one seems to know this... :o) Thanks a ton!

I agree with the first person to answer. Look into liberal studies with an ece minor. If you are thinking about special ed... do it! It pretty much guarantees you a job (at least in MI and out here there are not many teaching jobs to pick from). Best of luck to you... More
