The University of La Verne’s teacher education program is designed to provide tomorrow’s teachers with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to make a positive impact on the children in their classrooms and in the community. The program is specifically designed to meet the needs of California’s diverse student population, emphasizing language development, cultural diversity, and humanistic approaches to the learning process.
Student teaching & fieldwork placement
Students can find paid internships as early as after the first semester if state testing requirements are met. If a student has successfully completed the Constitution requirement, completed EDUC 460 and EDUC 470, completed subject matter competence, and has a contract in a public school, he/she will be eligible for an enhanced intern credential. For those not under contract, the student teacher coordinator will place candidates in a school site to complete all student teaching and fieldwork hours.
Admission & Graduation Requirements
Students enrolled in the Multiple or Single Subject Credential program who have earned a bachelor’s degree may complete the requirements for the Master of Education Special Emphasis as part of their advanced degree coursework. For admission requirements, class details and campus locations, consult the University catalog for the Multiple Subject (Elementary) Credential or Single Subject (Secondary) Credential.
