Single-Subject Credential Program - Specialization in Science Teaching

 

In California there are two kinds of Single-Subject Credentials:

1. Preliminary - issued for a maximum of five years, and;

2. Clear - issued after a teacher has completed a teacher preparation program, received a five-year preliminary credential and additional education training.

Requirements for earning a single-subject credential are here.

The Single-Subject Credential - Specialization in Science Teaching is designed for the student who already has a bachelor's degree in science or a related field and wants to become a California certified middle or high school science teacher. This program prepares pre-service teachers to consider how people learn and strategies to engage students in thinking about science ideas.

Students interested in the Single-Subject Credential Program - Specialization in Science Teaching should RSVP to attend an Applicant Orientation Session and meet with your Subject Area Advisor. Attending an Applicant Orientation Session creates an opportunity for you to receive an overview of this program from our advisors, get your questions answered, and meet some of your potential classmates. For questions please contact Science Education Program Director, Dr. Resa Kelly at resa.kelly@sjsu.edu
