The GSOE offers entry into teacher education programs for people at various points in their careers.  For a summary of recommended coursework that can be taken prior to applying to the program and exams that are required, review the Prepare to Teach flyer.  Please click on the program of interest for additional information.

The Multiple Subject Credential is for those who are interested in teaching at the elementary level.

The Single Subject Credential is for those who are interested in teaching specific subjects in the middle school or high school.

The Education Specialist Credential is for those who are interested in teaching students with exceptional needs.

The M.Ed. General Education Teaching Emphasis is designed for students seeking Multiple Subject or Single Subject certification. The program's goal is to produce thoughtful teachers who can use educational theory and research to inform their teaching, who will use technology in meaningful ways to enhance teaching and learning, and who will become leaders in their respective school districts. Program completion in approximately 14 months.

The M.Ed. Special Education Teaching Emphasis was recently revised by its renown Special Education faculty to reflect the increasing demand for teachers who have a more advanced theoretical and practical understanding of the challenges and the needs of their Special Education students and who are credentialed to teach all of their Special Education students, including those with mild to severe disabilities.


AB 2086 requires that effective January 1, 2010 all teacher preparation programs provide information on their web site to prospective candidates regarding the license examination passage rates of completers for the most recent available year.  The Annual Report Card on California Teacher Preparation Programs for the Academic Year 2012-2013 as required by Title II of the Higher Education Act was presented to the Commission at the October 2014 meeting.  The full report can be accessed here.

The 2013 State Reports include data that states reported to the Department in October 2013. For many data elements, such as the number of individuals enrolled in teacher preparation programs, states reported on AY 2011-12 data. For other data elements, such as the admission requirements for each teacher preparation program and descriptions of the state's alternative routes to a teacher credential, states reported on the most current information available. The full report can be accessed here.
