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.
Approximately 50% of our students receive scholarships and awards from the School of Education. The University of Redlands School of Education cares deeply about offering a world-class graduate education that is affordable and accessible, providing a range of scholarship and assistantship awards for greater access to our graduate degree programs.
As nearly 25% of teachers retire in the coming years, the demand for new teachers in Southern California will remain high. The University of Redlands School of Education, through the degree completion program, is dedicated to developing and mentoring compassionate, influential teachers who are driven to contribute to something greater than themselves. This program allows students to find future success as a teacher.
The teaching credential program also lays the foundation for a long-term future in education, not only as a teacher but also in leadership roles as well. Teaching experience is the first step to becoming a department head, administrator, or principal that can shape educational access and equity for a school and the greater community.
The Redlands degree completion program develops teachers who are paving the way for academic innovation. Interested in taking the next step in your own career? Explore the BA Completer admission requirements below, request more information, or get started on your application today!
