As part of this unique four year model, you’ll complete credential coursework and work in the field alongside mentor teachers. Students are able to pursue a multiple subjects (elementary) or single subject (secondary) credential track. You can also earn a Master's in Special Education by completing an additional year.
Students complete course requirements within selected majors while also taking the courses required for a teaching credential at the School of Education and training in Bay Area classrooms.
Students gain hands-on experience in local classrooms with experienced mentor teachers. California requires students to spend 45 hours in a classroom prior to student teaching, we provide twice that and offer additional opportunities to work in the field.
