Multiple Subject Credential

English Learner Authorization (ELA) and Bilingual Authorization in Spanish or Hmong

Two Semester Option (FALL semester only)

The two-semester option is designed for students who already have had a significant amount of teaching/classroom experience and demonstrate the ability to assume teaching responsibilities at an accelerated pace. Students who have completed their bachelor’s degree, subject matter requirement (passed all three subtests of the Multiple Subject CSET), basic skills requirement (passed CBEST) and will have completed pre-requisite credential courses prior to the beginning of the program will be given higher priority for admission to this option.
(NOMS: for strong two-semester candidates without pre-requisite coursework completed, a range of options including summer school exists. Please discuss these options with advisors in the Advising, Equity, and Outreach Services Office - Eureka Hall 437).

The two-semester program requires a full-time commitment, i.e., 4 ½ days a week, 7:30 am - 5:00 pm (and until 7:00 on Tuesdays) for the fall and spring semesters during which time most evenings and part of each weekend will require lesson planning, gathering materials, reading for courses, and preparing course assignments. In addition to the academic year commitment, the two-semester program requires a mandatory 3-day orientation that will be held the week prior to the official starting date of the program. Students will also be required to complete some tasks and assignments during the summer. Candidates will typically be placed at a school with at least 4-6 other candidates from the program, thus providing opportunities for collaboration and camaraderie at the school site. Our programs have partner schools in districts throughout the region. Student teaching placements are made by the program faculty after the admissions process has concluded.
