Single-Subject Teaching Credential

The German Department is currently in the process of applying for approval by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing of its teacher preparation program. Until approval is granted, students must pass the PRAXIS and SSAT exams. Once the program is approved, the PRAXIS and SSAT exams will not be required for those who successfully complete the approved program. Students who wish to be certified to teach German should meet with an advisor in the German Department for guidance and information. Most students complete the teacher preparation program, including student teaching, during a fifth year after graduation.
