Degree Completion Program

Bachelor of Arts in Education with Multiple Subject Teaching Credential

The Bachelor of Arts in Education with Multiple Subject Credential is for students who have started but have not yet completed a four-year undergraduate degree related to Education. Our program takes a minimum of 2.5 years to complete which includes 14 weeks of student teaching. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to teach multiple subjects in the PreK-12 elementary school setting. Our program is  WSCUC approved. 

Our degree completion program is fully aligned with our educational justice and social justice school ethos which emphasizes access and excellent educational opportunity for diverse learners. We work with our students to help them become more aware of social justice issues so they are in a better position to teach and support their students. We prepare students to be change agents by turning their classrooms into communities.

This is a hybrid program with classes both online and in-person at our Redlands main campus.
