Single Subject Credential - Student Teaching and University Intern Options

The Single Subject Preliminary Credential authorizes its holder to teach in departmentalized classes, usually in the middle or high school. 


A. Student Teaching Option (38-41 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 student teaching 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 (12-15 units):

CSUDH LBS students with catalog rights beginning Fall 2016 are exempt from Phase I courses except for TED 467 (for credential only) and should arrange to take it with Phase II classes.
