State Exams & Student Teaching

SUBJECT MATTER COMPETENCY


All teacher credential candidates must demonstrate competency in their specific subject matter area. In the state of California, this requirement can be met by successful completion of one of the alternatives described below. 

Multiple Subject (teaching in elementary schools) must pass the all sections of the Multiple Subject, California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). 

Single Subject (teaching single-content areas in middle or high schools) candidates must either

1. Pass state-approved examinations (CSET) in their specific subject matter area.

2. Complete a state- approved, single-subject waiver program. Speak to an advisor for equivalency. 

Before teacher credential candidates are allowed to student teach, competency in related subject matter content areas must be evidenced either by passing the CSET or by having completed at least four-fifths of an approved subject matter competency program. A student who successfully completes a waiver program does not need to pass the state-approved subject competency examinations. 

STUDENT-TEACHING REQUIREMENTS


Prior to the student teaching seminar (EDUG 452) students must complete the following:

•Multiple Subject- CSET subject tests 101, 102 and 103 and TPA I and TPA II
•Single Subject- All CSET single subject tests and TPA I and TPA II 

Prior to completion of the credential program, students must complete the following:

Additional Requirements for Credentials

To be eligible to be recommended for the Preliminary Teaching Credential or the Preliminary Education Specialist Credential, candidates must meet the U.S. Constitution requirement. For details on meeting this requirement, contact the School of Education. Introduction to American Politics (POLI 111) or American History to 1877 (HIST 121), in the College of Arts and Sciences, or their equivalents, satisfy the requirement.

Master of Arts in Education

 

Undergraduate students at the University of Redlands can complete up to 18 credit hours of degree work toward a teaching credential or Master of Arts in Education, Learning and Teaching as undergraduates. Students who wish to pursue a master's degree must apply to the School of Education. 

This pathway to a profession in education helps to create a professional path to being a teacher for those undergraduates who have identified education as their passion early in their college experience.
