Teaching Credentials: Multiple Subject Program
The Multiple Subject Teaching Credential authorizes the holder to teach all subjects in a self-contained classroom, such as the classrooms in most elementary schools, in grades preschool, K-12, or in classes organized primarily for adults. In addition, the holder of a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential may serve in a core or team teaching setting.
The College's Multiple Subject Program is a post-baccalaureate program focused on preparing effective teachers for urban classrooms. The program has two and three semester options. Two semester candidates complete a program that requires full-time students status, with field experience and student teaching requirements as well as full-time coursework requirements both semesters. Two semester candidates complete their field experience and student teaching activities with partner schools in local districts including Sacramento City, San Juan, Elk Grove, Washington, and Folsom Cordova unified school districts. Three semester candidates complete a program with a more gradual introduction of field experience/student teaching activities, though the 3rd semester of the program requires a full time commitment. Most three semester candidates will complete their field experience/student teaching in one of our 4 professional development schools, located in the San Juan Unified School Distinct. All program coursework is conducted at the Sacramento State campus.
