NCATE Category: 

Initial Teacher Preparation


A teacher with a Multiple Subject Credential is authorized to teach grades pre-K through 12 in self-contained classrooms. The Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP) prepares students to be credentialed in the State of California for elementary and middle school instruction. The program allows for daytime field experiences in elementary classrooms and includes methodology courses and student teaching. The program can be completed in one summer and two semesters or three semesters, depending upon when prerequisites and corequisites are taken, when the student begins the program, and whether a part-time or full-time schedule is followed. Program requirements must be met within five years of the date of admission to the program.

The department has four Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP) tracks:

  • Multiple Subject Credential Program
  • Bilingual Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development(BCLAD) Emphasis (Spanish, Cambodian [Khmer], Chinese [Mandarin and Cantonese], Korean, Vietnamese)
  • Multiple Subject Internship Program
  • Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP)
