We offer both Multiple Subject Credential Programs (MSCP) and Single Subject Credential Programs (SSCP).

MSCP for Elementary Education

Inside the Advisement Guide you will find information about our Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP), including details about the application process and a list of the required courses and contact numbers.  For your information, we offer the following MSCP models:

  • Traditional Student Teaching
  • Intern
  • MSCP with Bilingual Authorization.

We also offer a 1-year/3-semester MSC/Master of Arts in Education Program (called Critical Research Academy).  Begin your application process by attending a General Advisement Session

For those of you with a valid teaching credential, we offer a MA in Education that focuses on literacy across the curriculum for an equitable society (LACES).  The LACES program will help you earn both a Reading Certificate (as an added authorization) and a Reading/Language Arts credential. 


SSCP for Secondary Education

The Single Subject Credential program is a community of professors, supervisors and teachers making important contributions to middle and high school education in California.  As a member of the Connie L. Lurie College of Education, we are dedicated to fostering equity and excellence in our community and beyond.  It is our goal to prepare educators who can work effectively and sensitively in the vibrant multicultural, multilingual, and technologically complex environment of California's secondary schools.

Our candidates bring a wide array of life experiences to school, which contributes to a rich  and intellectually stimulating learning environment.  Many of our candidates come from the communities we serve and most are committed to a career of service in teaching and administration.  We hope that all of our candidates become thoughtful and reflective teachers who seize every opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions they need to make a difference in the lives of their students.
