Program Information

The Single Subject Credential Program focuses on developing teachers who

  • embrace core democratic values and strive to live and teach by them,
  • know the content of the curriculum, including state-adopted standards, and be able to teach it to a diverse population of students,
  • design learning experiences based on an understanding of students' physical, intellectual, emotional, social, cultural, and linguistic needs,
  • utilize assessments to monitor student progress and modify instruction,
  • create and maintain a democratic learning environment that supports all students’ academic and personal success,
  • develop as a reflective practitioner who exercises legal and ethical responsibility and engages in continuous professional renewal, and
  • understand the role of teachers as moral stewards of the school and community.

This program leads to a Preliminary Single Subject Credential (secondary school setting - middle or high school). Candidates may begin in fall or spring and participate in supervised teaching practica throughout northeastern California.

Candidates are able to complete programs leading to credentials through a variety of delivery options. All candidates follow the education block system. Assigned faculty advisors assist candidates with program planning.
