INTERDISCIPLINARY LIBERAL STUDIES (IDLS) MAJOR

Checklist 2007-2008

The IDLS major serves four teacher education professional programs: Early Childhood (Pre-K-3), Elementary (Pre-K-6), Middle Grades (6-8), and Special Education (K-12). There are different editions of the IDLS major for these licensure programs, as follows:

IDLS for Early Childhood (Pre-K-3) and Elementary (PreK-6). For ECE and ELED students the IDLS major consists of an enlarged General Education CORE. These lower division CORE courses are followed by upper division course work in one of two concentration areas: Math/Science/Technology or Humanities/Social Sciences.

IDLS for Special Education (K-12). SPED students take the same General Education CORE as ECE and ELED students. These CORE courses are followed by upper division course work in one of two concentration areas: Math/Science/Technology or Humanities/Social Sciences. SPED students selecting the Humanities/Social Sciences as their concentration may elect to fulfil the concentration by completing any track in the Hum/SS area. Track 7, however, was designed for SPED students and only SPED students may select this track.

IDLS for Middle Grades (6-8). Middle Grades students follow the normal General Education requirements, although there are several "must-take" courses specified for this group. As they are completing General Education, Middle Grades students select two of four concentrations for their IDLS major: Science, Mathematics, Social Science or Language Arts. Any combination of two concentrations is acceptable for Middle Grades licensure.

IDLS majors will be assigned two advisors: an IDLS advisor based upon which concentration is selected, and an education advisor based upon which professional program is selected. The IDLS advisor will assist the student in course selection and provide updates on special topics courses or substitutions in the IDLS major. The schedule for completing the IDLS major will vary depending upon the professional program selected. Therefore, students are strongly urged to keep in touch with both advisors in order to guarantee timely completion of the IDLS major and the education minor.

Questions about the IDLS major can be addressed to either

Dr. Fletcher Linder, Director of Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies (lindergf) or

Ms. Margot Zahner, IDLS Advisor, (zahnermm).

Questions about the Education Professional Programs may be addressed to

Dr. Margaret Kyger, Head, Department of Exceptional Education (kygermm) or

Dr. LouAnn Lovin, Head, Department of Middle, Secondary, and Math Education (lovinla) or

Dr. Martha Ross, Head, Department of Early, Elementary, and Reading Education (rossmk).
