Single Subject Matter Programs
Through the Single Subject Matter Programs, students complete subject matter competence through undergraduate coursework in preparation for pursuing a Teaching Credential.
VU English, Mathematics, or Music majors who complete the required coursework fulfill a California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) approved Subject Matter Preparation Program, which can be used in lieu of the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) requirement to enroll in a California Single Subject Teaching Credential Program. More information about CSETs can be found here: CTC Exams.
VU English, Mathematics, or Music majors who are interested in obtaining a California Single Subject Teaching Credential after completing their bachelor’s degree should speak to their academic advisor to be guided through the teaching credential track in their degree program.
Contact the VU Graduate Program in Education for specific information about completing a California Teaching Credential.
