The Single Subject Teaching Credential in Social Science

Course Requirements for the Single Subject Teaching Credential: 57-60 units

In most majors, candidates for this credential will normally fulfill the single subject matter preparation program by completing the appropriate education option in the major. Any exceptions to this procedure are noted at the end of this section. In addition to the single subject matter preparation program, completion of an additional professional education program is required to qualify for a California teaching credential. Professional education (credential) programs are available through the School of Education. For prerequisites and other admission requirements to professional education programs, see the “Education” chapter of this catalog. All credential candidates recommended by CSU, Chico (under the SB 2042 standards) are authorized to teach all students including English learners in the regular classroom. You may also want to consider qualifying for BCLAD (Bilingual, Cross-cultural, Language, and Academic Development) emphasis and supplementary authorizations in additional subject matter areas as you plan your program.

Your departmental credential adviser is responsible for verifying that the subject matter preparation program has been completed. If you are interested in obtaining a teaching credential, confer with the appropriate credential adviser early in your university career. Department credential advisers can assist you in planning an educational program that meets both major and credential requirements.

Subject matter preparation requirements are governed by legislative action and approval of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Requirements may change between catalogs. Please consult with your departmental credential adviser for current information.
