Vanguard's Integrated STEM Teach Achievement

VISTAone of Vanguard University's Integrated Teacher Education Programs (ITEP), is designed to create a comprehensive integrated pathway for Hispanic students to enter the teaching profession, thereby increasing the diversity of science teachers within the STEM disciples. Through VISTA, students who desire to enter the teaching field now have the opportunity to complete both a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry, Biology or Math and a Teaching Credential within a 4-year pathway. *The California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) may be required pending California Commission on Teaching Credentialing (CTC) approval.
