Multiple Subject 

The Multiple Subject Program prepares candidates to earn a Preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, authorizing them to teach in a self-contained public classroom, usually grades kindergarten through six.

Single Subject

The Single Subject Program prepares candidates to complete their Preliminary Single Subject Credential authorizing them to teach a specific subject such as English or Math, typically in public middle and high school classrooms in California.

Traditional Student Teaching Program 

The traditional student teaching program is a three-semester program; candidates complete students teaching in a local classroom with a master teacher in their third semester.

University Intern Program

The University Interns Program provides an opportunity for qualified candidates to work as teachers of record while completing their pre-service preparation.  Internships are an alternative to a traditional practicum and student teaching. Students may only become university interns after meeting all requirements including completing prerequisite classes and having an offer of employment with a school which meet all of the program’s criteria.
