Master of Arts in Teaching: Elementary Education and Multiple Subject Credential

The elementary teacher education program involves both cutting edge coursework and extensive field experiences in diverse school communities culminating in a multiple subject credential, with an option for a bilingual multicultural emphasis. These experiences are embedded in the coursework, early fieldwork and student teaching. Our unique teaching programs emphasize linguistic and culturally responsive pedagogy to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student population in California schools.

The Master of Arts in Teaching: Elementary Education (MAT) program allows candidates to obtain both the multiple subject credential and the master’s degree through an integrated program of coursework, fieldwork, and student research. This program is targeted to individuals who wish to begin their teaching careers with both a teaching credential and a master’s degree.


Master of Arts in Teaching: Secondary Education and Single Subject Credential

In California, the appropriate credential to teach a specific subject in a departmentalized classroom at the middle school or high school level is the single subject teaching credential. This credential authorizes public school teaching in a departmentalized classroom. The single subject credential is also utilized by those who wish to be subject area specialists in any K-12 setting (such as fine/performing arts, physical education, and other elective areas).

The Master of Arts in Teaching: Secondary Education (MAT) program allows the candidate to obtain both the single subject credential and the master’s degree through an integrated program of coursework, fieldwork, and student research. This program is targeted to individuals who wish to begin their teaching careers with both a teaching credential and a master’s degree.
