LMU's Secondary Education Credential Program prepares you to serve as a teacher in a California grade 6-12 public school classroom. Our curriculum leads to a combined California SB2042 Single Subject Preliminary Teaching Credential and an MA degree. We offer the Single Subject Credential in 7 areas: English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Spanish, and Languages Other Than English. LMU allows you to add an MA to your Credential by simply adding 1 to 3 additional classes to your existing Credential curriculum. You can specialize in one of three MA concentrations: Secondary Education, Literacy and Language Arts, or Bilingual Secondary Education, depending on your professional goals. If you are interested in teaching at the Elementary level, please view the Elementary Education Program.
This program follows the "traditional" track. Upon successful completion of coursework, CTC requirements, including 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.
