Community College Teaching Certificate Program

Teaching in the community college no longer requires a credential. Since the 1990-91 academic year, most community colleges require faculty to have a master's degree in a discipline currently taught at the community college level.

The Community College Teaching Certificate Program is designed for candidates who are interested in teaching in a community college, or who are new faculty at a community college. The program consists of three courses (8 units), a two unit survey course, a three unit methodology course and a three unit teaching internship at a community college.

Prerequisites

To be eligible for the program, the student must be near completion in a graduate program, possess a master's degree, or be currently employed as a faculty member in a community college.
