Single Subject Credential Program

The Single Subject Program prepares candidates for teaching in middle schools, junior high, and senior high schools. The program has two primary goals: 1) to help you develop the skills and knowledge needed to be an effective beginning teacher, and 2) to establish the professional understandings and attitudes for supporting growth and development throughout your teaching career.

The Single Subject Credential Program is fully accredited by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). When you complete the program you will be recommended for the California Single Subject Preliminary Teaching Credential in your subject area.


A recent change in California State University admissions policy for all Single Subject programs has resulted in the need for Spring 2013 applicants to complete Subject Matter Competency requirements PRIOR TO ADMISSION into the Single Subject credential program.
