Introductory Art Subject Matter Authorization (33 units)

Holders of a Single Subject or Multiple Subject credential issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing may secure an Introductory Art Subject Matter Authorization that allows the holder to teach the subject matter content typically included in curriculum guidelines and textbooks approved for study in grades 9 and below.  This allows an employer to assign a teacher with an introductory art authorization to teach a class in which the curriculum is for grades 9 and below but the students in the class may be in grades K-12. 

For other requirements governing issuance of this authorization, consult the Teacher Education section of this catalog or contact the School of Education Student Services Center.
