The Urban Learning Program was developed in 2000 in response to the need for elementary and special education teachers appropriately prepared to teach in highly diverse urban schools. It is the only undergraduate degree major of its kind in the State of California. In addition to preparing culturally sensitive educators for elementary school classrooms, it prepares special education teachers across a range of disability specialization.
