Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music

Completion of this option meets the subject matter competence requirement for the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music. In addition to meeting the subject matter competence requirement for the Teaching Credential, prospective Music teachers are also required to complete 45 units of professional preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program, including student teaching. Students may begin the professional preparation courses as early as the junior year. With careful planning, it is possible to complete all of the credential program courses, except for student teaching, as an undergraduate. Courses may also be completed as a post-baccalaureate student. Refer to the Single Subject Teacher Education section of this catalog or the Single Subject Credential Program website (www.ced.csulb.edu/single-subject) for a description of the professional preparation requirements, courses, and application procedures. Prospective students should consult the conservatory's Music Education Advisor early to plan their program.

The Subject Matter Preparation Program has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
