Single Subject Matter Programs

The single subject matter programs allow students to complete their subject matter competence through undergraduate coursework, in preparation for pursuing a teaching credential. Students interested in obtaining a teaching credential after completion of their bachelor's degree should speak to their academic advisor to be placed on the teaching track or emphasis in their degree program. Each of the single subject programs listed below has the approval of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) for those seeking a California Single Subject Teaching Credential in that specific subject area (Students should refer to the graduate program in education for specific information about completing a teaching credential).
