The University of Redlands provides a multi-faceted teacher education program. After successful completion of the required course work and program requirements, students advance to student teaching or a teaching internship.

The regulations and requirements of our teacher education program are approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). All teacher credentials candidates must demonstrate competency in their specific subject matter area prior to student teaching and the teaching seminar.
