Strategic Teacher Education Partnership (STEP) Cohorts

The Kremen School of Education and Human Development has started an innovative way of preparing new teachers! We are proud to offer new, cohort classes in Liberal Studies.

Students in a STEP cohort will have all the same peers in their classes and cohort-specific faculty to assist your cohort's success. No need to worry about getting into your classes or having multiple tests on the same day. The STEP cohort provides energetic professors, true interdisciplinary projects, and connections to classroom practice.

    • March/April
      • Students that are First time Freshmen at Fresno State going into Junior Year:
