Bachelor's in Education for Transfer Students

Bachelor of Arts in Education Studies with Multiple Subject Teaching Credential

The Bachelor of Arts in Education Studies with Multiple Subject Credential is for transfer students who have started but have not yet completed a four-year undergraduate degree related to Education. Our program takes 2 academic years to complete, which includes a culminating fieldwork experience. Students interested in an extended pathway option can speak with their designated academic advisor upon admission. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to teach multiple subjects in the Pre-K-12 elementary school setting. Our program is WSCUC approved. 

Our bachelor's degree 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.
