Undergraduate Program for Teacher Preparation
Integrated Teacher Credential Program (SB 2042)
The School of Education offers both the Multiple Subject (elementary school) and Single Subject (secondary, including middle and high school) Teacher Credential Programs. The programs are accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and are aligned with SB 2042 standards and mandates.
After satisfying the credential program prerequisites, undergraduates at the University may enroll in a teacher credential program while completing their Baccalaureate degree. Students often take the prerequisite courses and begin the educational foundations and methods courses while taking their undergraduate courses.
After graduation, students complete their coursework and student teaching experience through the School of Education’s post-Baccalaureate program. For more information, see the Teacher Credential Program segment of this website. It is possible, with careful planning, to meet all the requirements for both a Baccalaureate degree and a teacher credential as an undergraduate.
