Elementary Education

LMU's Elementary Education Credential Program prepares you to serve as a teacher in a California K-5 public school classroom. Our curriculum leads to a combined California SB2042 Multiple Subjects Preliminary Teaching Credential and an MA degree. If you are interested in teaching Middle or High School, please view the Secondary Education Program.

This program follows the pre-service, "traditional" track. Upon successful completion of coursework, CTC requirements, including clinical practice and student teaching in a public school, you will be eligible for a Preliminary Teaching Credential. If you are currently employed as a full-time teacher you should review the program requirements for the Intern Practitioner track.
