Liberal Arts & Education Pathways
Exploring Liberal Arts and Teaching
If you’re headed for a teaching career, or if you have other interests in the liberal arts, Regis can help you prepare for your future. At Regis, the liberal arts and education are linked into a pathway that leads to elementary and secondary teaching careers, or to careers that extend naturally from degrees in English, history, liberal studies and Spanish.
Regis education students pursue teacher training together with a major in a liberal arts subject. This way, you can earn a bachelor’s degree in the major together with an initial teaching license. Co-majors for elementary education licensure are English, history, liberal studies, mathematics education, political science, psychology and sociology. Co-majors for secondary education licensure are English, history, mathematics education and Spanish.
As well as going directly to the classroom, your liberal arts and education pathway can take you on to master’s programs, including our own master of arts in teaching (MAT) degrees. You may even be able to gain advanced standing in our programs and earn your MAT within five years of entering Regis as a freshman.
For liberal arts students, the English major offers scholarly, publishing and professional tracks in addition to an interdisciplinary concentration in English and theatre. The history major is affiliated with the Public Heritage Institute, a nonprofit research and teaching institute housed at Regis. Liberal studies offers a menu of interdisciplinary options appropriate for a variety of career choices. The Spanish major is ideal for learning to communicate and act in a global setting, and it offers upper-level students the option of graduate courses.
Regis students have the opportunity to take advantage of specialized minors within the liberal arts: dance, educational theatre, information systems, music, religious studies, theatre, women’s studies and writing.
