INTERDISCIPLINARY MAJORS

Footnote 1: The teaching credential in California requires an academic major, plus professional preparation courses in education, an approved program of practice teaching or an internship, and a full year of college work beyond the baccalaureate. Education Studies at UC San Diego leads to a single subject (secondary) or multiple-subjects (elementary) credential.

Footnote 2: Law schools do not require any particular major, but they do require evidence of good scholarship in demanding subjects. Almost any undergraduate major can qualify a student for consideration by a law school. The UC San Diego Career Services Center staff includes professional prelaw advisers.

Footnote 3: Like law schools, medical schools do not generally demand a particular major but ask for a solid background in the sciences upon which medicine is built. Most premed students major in biology, chemistry, physics, or bioengineering, but a substantial number major in the humanities and social sciences. The UC San Diego Career Services Center staff includes professional premedical advisers.
