Welcome to the School of Education!

It is important that the substance of our success be centered upon students and the intellectual contribution that together we can make in education. Our substance will define us into the future, so our vision must clarify how we will contribute to the communities that we serve, be it the Inland Empire, the state of California or the national professional communities.

CAS Undergraduate Teacher Credential Program

Program Pathways

Individual program requirements can be found on the program pathways in the Current Teacher Candidates webpage resources. The coursework and the field experience segments of the program are delivered in a prescribed sequence. Pathways are recommended for timely program completion. CAS/SOE students will work with their CAS Faculty Advisor and OSS Advisor for program planning. 

Current Teacher Candidates  


All teacher candidates will complete student teaching as the culminating fieldwork experience for their program. In order to student teach, teacher candidates must submit a complete application by the deadline of the semester they plan to complete their fieldwork.  

Early Fieldwork 

Preliminary Credential

The preliminary credential is the credential that all teacher candidates are working towards completing in their program. Throughout the program it is essential that you stay up to date on all program requirements and ensure that you are eligible to apply for the Preliminary Credential by the end of the program. To become aware and stay up to date on credential requirements and deadlines please check out the Pathway to Credentialing webpage.   

Subject Matter Competency

Teacher candidates must demonstrate subject matter competency in their subject areas. Subject-matter competency must be met in order to apply to be a student-teacher. It can be met by examination or waiver program. The California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) is a series of subject matter examinations for prospective teachers who choose to meet the subject matter competence requirement by taking examinations. The CSET exams must be passed in order to apply for student teaching. Students in the Music Education program submit a waiver letter in their application to satisfy the subject matter competency.    

Subject Matter Competency 

U.S. Constitution

CCTC requires all teacher candidates to have knowledge of the U.S. Constitution. Teacher candidates are required to participate in coursework or an examination that covers the provisions and principles of the U.S. Constitution before they can be recommended for a preliminary credential. Undergraduate courses at U of R that meet this requirement are Introduction to American Politics (POLI 111) and American History to 1877 (HIST 121).
