Multiple Subject (Elementary) Credential
Full-time Multiple Subject Credential Program with Authorization to Teach English Learners
The Multiple Subject Credential Program is designed to prepare teachers to work with students in grades K-12 with responsibility for all subject areas in a self-contained and core classroom. Teachers holding a Multiple Subject Credential are most often assigned to preschool and elementary school classrooms.
This program has been specifically designed to prepare teachers for the diversity of languages often encountered in California public school classrooms. The Authorization to Teach English Learners is met through the infusion of content and experiences within the Multiple Subject Program, as well as additional coursework. Students successfully completing this program receive the Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential with Authorization to Teach English Learners.
A two semester program, the Multiple Subject Program provides coursework in learning and instruction, content area methodology correlated with field experiences and clinical practice in conjunction with the Authorization to Teach English Learners. The School of Education is specifically committed to providing students with opportunities to learn innovative teaching practices and put these methods to work with children.
Part-time Multiple Subject Credential Program with Authorization to Teach English Learners
The Part-time Multiple Subject Credential Program is intended for those students who are unable to pursue a full-time program. The curriculum is the same as the full-time program, except that three courses are offered in the first and third semesters of coursework while two courses are offered in the second semester of coursework. Clinical Practice I and II occur in the fourth semester of the program. Therefore, the Multiple Subject part-time program is delivered in 4 consecutive semesters. The part-time program is offered as an evening program.
