**Students majoring in PSYC, SOBS, science or math should seek advisement regarding what additional classes are needed.

Liberal Arts Major: Every education major must complete a full major from Arts and Sciences. This major must be a minimum of 36 credits. Teaching majors, as defined by the New Jersey Department of Education, are English, math, history, science, (biology and environmental studies) world languages, and fine arts. Other majors such as psychology, social and behavioral sciences, sociology, communications and others may be taken. However, these types of majors are not considered to be teaching majors and elementary teachers who have chosen these majors may not teach beyond 4th grade.

**Note: Social Work is NOT an option for a co-major with education.
