Why Choose Us?

The Center for Undergraduate Teacher Preparation (CUTP) is a vibrant community that draws together all who are interested in education in ways that encourage them to be engaged learners, critical thinkers, and socially responsible citizens. The Center provides matriculation-to-graduation advising and other academic and professional support to undergraduate students preparing for careers in K-12 teaching. The Center also serves as a resource for faculty and staff who provide instruction and other services in LMU’s undergraduate teacher preparation programs. Undergraduate students completing a program supported by the Center will achieve both a major in their chosen discipline, as well as fulfill the requirements set forth by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for a preliminary teaching credential within their time at LMU.

Are you interested in earning your bachelor's degree and teaching credential simultaneously? We would like to ensure that you receive proper advising and information about our programs in a personal way. You can schedule an in-person advising appointment.
