A teacher with a Single Subject Credential is authorized to teach the specific subject(s) named on the credential in departmentalized schools. This is commonly done in California high schools and in most California junior high and middle schools. However, a teacher authorized for single subject instruction may be assigned to teach any subject in his or her authorized fields at any grade level: pre-school, kindergarten and grades one through twelve; or in classes organized primarily for adults. The Single Subject Credential Program (SSCP) prepares university students to be credentialed in California for single subject instruction. At CSULB the program includes courses in the student's teaching subject area, in Secondary Education (EDSE), and in Single Subject Education (EDSS).
Students are able to receive information brochures by calling the Teacher Preparation Advising Center at (562) 985-5325 or on the website at www.ced.csulb.edu/single-subject.
