Teacher Education Program

The teacher education program offers credential programs to candidates like you, interested in teaching general education in the elementary and middle school classroom (multiple subjects) and specific subjects at the middle school and high school levels (single subject). You may also combine either of these credentials with a master's degree in education. The courses are solidly grounded in both theory and practice and have been designed to provide you with thorough preparation to teach in multilingual, multicultural communities. This program is accredited by the California Commission on Teaching Credentialing (CCTC) and recognized by private schools, as well.
