Welcome to the Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP)
at Cal State University Long Beach!

Standing before a room full of students takes courage, heart, and skill.  The Multiple Subject Credential Program (MSCP) at California State University, Long Beach provides pre-service teachers with the tools and confidence they need to be successful in the teaching profession. 

Our program is a state-approved and nationally accredited professional preparation program which leads to a credential to teach multiple subjects in a self-contained classroom setting.  Teachers with this credential traditionally teach elementary (K-8) grades.  Because of an integrated approach to certification that incorporates the theoretical and research-based foundations of good teaching coupled with extensive opportunities for hands-on application in real-world classrooms, CSULB multiple subject credentialed teachers are highly desired by public, private, and charter school employers.
