Multiple and Single Subject Credential
La Verne’s teacher education program is designed to equip tomorrow’s teachers with the knowledge and skills they need to make a positive impact on the children in their classrooms and in the community. The program is targeted to meet the needs of California’s diverse student population, emphasizing language development, cultural diversity, and humanistic approaches to the learning process.
Students may pursue a multiple or single subject credential. Cross-cultural, language, and academic development issues are incorporated into the program.
The Teacher Education Process
The multiple and single subject credential teacher preparation programs address teaching strategies for all students in California schools. Integrated throughout the programs are methodologies to deliver comprehensive instruction to English learners and to work with special populations in the general education classroom. This replaces the program formerly designated as the CLAD credential.
The University’s on-campus teacher education classes are scheduled in late afternoons, evenings, or weekends. Fieldwork assignments must be completed within public school hours.
If a student has been admitted to the Credential program and successfully completed the constitution requirement, completed EDUC 460 and EDUC 470, designated state test, and has a contract in a public school; he/she may be eligible for an intern credential.
Master of Education Candidates
Students enrolled in the Master of Education Special Emphasis program who have earned a bachelor’s degree may complete the requirements for the Multiple or Single Subject Credential as part of their advanced degree coursework.
