Purpose

The Objective of the Single Subject Teaching Credential Program at CSU Channel Islands is to:
Prepare effective and successful teachers for California public schools who:

  • are reflective and deliberative practitioners;
  • have mastered the content of their discipline,
  • are able to link content and pedagogy;
  • can integrate research, theory, and best educational practice into their teaching;
  • are able to integrate technology into their teaching;
  • understand and can meet the needs of diverse learners and special needs students

Background

The Single Subject Teaching Credential Program prepares teachers to work with students in subject specific content areas in departmentalized schools. Single Subject Credential Teachers most often teach in departmentalized middle schools, junior highs and in high schools.

This program specifically prepares teachers for the diversity of languages and cultures often encountered in'
California Public Schools. The program prepares candidates to address the needs of students who speak English as a native language and/or as a second language in the secondary school setting.

An underlying principle of the program is that all students (regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, ability or economic status) are capable learners.
