Multiple Subject Matter Program
Through the Multiple Subject Matter Program, students complete subject matter competence through undergraduate coursework in preparation for pursuing a Teaching Credential.
VU Liberal Studies majors who complete the required coursework fulfill a California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) approved Elementary Subject Matter Waiver, which can be used in lieu of the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) requirement to enroll in a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential Program. More information about CSETs can be found here: CTC Exams.
Contact the VU Graduate Program in Education for specific information about completing a California Teaching Credential.
