Multiple Subject Credential -Student Teaching and University Intern Options

The Multiple Subject Preliminary Credential authorizes its holder to teach in a self-contained classroom, usually grades transitional kindergarten through six.

A. Student Teaching Option (51 units)

Candidates enrolled in the Student Teaching Option are not contracted teachers and are assigned to master teachers in a public school setting for their supervised field experiences. In addition, student teachers receive support and guidance from a university supervisor. In the Student Teaching Option, there are three phases. The program sequence in the Student Teaching Option allows candidates to complete their coursework and exit requirements in one year, if they begin the program in the summer semester.

1. Phase One (11-14 units):

CSUDH LBS students with catalog rights beginning Fall 2016 are exempt from Phase I courses (for credential only). After being accepted to the program, proceed directly to Phase II.
