Single Subject Credential Programs
Our Single Subject Credential Programs are the only nationally-accredited programs in Orange County. Those successfully completing our programs receive a credential from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing which authorizes teaching in the subject(s) identified in grades K-12. High school teachers and most middle school teachers hold single subject credentials. Some single subject teachers also work in elementary grades (for example, many music teachers who teach at elementary schools hold single subject credentials).

Master's Degree Programs
These programs are designed to help career secondary classroom teachers upgrade their skills, become informed about new ideas in secondary teaching, and prepare for curriculum leadership roles in public and private schools.
Our graduate programs build upon teacher preparation in the Single Subject Preliminary Credential Program. Whereas coursework in the credential program focuses on knowledge and skills necessary for a beginning secondary teacher, graduate programs allow students to extend their knowledge and deepen their skills in curriculum design, instructional and assessment strategies, integration of technology, and reflective practice.
