The California Single Subjects Teaching Credential with Internship Option is designed for candidates dedicated to instructional leadership in the P-12 settings. Courses meet the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) requirements for a Preliminary Single Subject teaching credential. Candidates are required to successfully complete Core courses, single subject methods' area, and a clinical practice path (student teaching or internship).
* Please note : Students need to satisfy/pass the Basic Skills Requirement (e.g., CBEST) and Subject Matter Competency Requirement (e.g., CSET) early (prior to Credential Area Methods coursework) into their programs to avoid interruptions to program progress and/or financial aid arrangements.
For additional information on credential requirements, please see the School of Education Credential Information section of the catalog.
