​Masters in Education - Secondary Education Credential

Make a difference at a critical stage.

A Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a Secondary Education Credential prepares you for a fulfilling career as a middle school or high school teacher. It also supports your goal of making a difference in students' lives and in their communities at large.

Students of the program can choose from an 18-month, 1-year, or 2-year format of study. Along the way, you'll forge connections between theory and practice, interweaving coursework with thoughtfully designed field experiences. Both classroom work and hands-on student teaching incorporate a strong sense of social justice and a determination to step outside our own cultures and comfort levels.

Once students complete the program, they're in high demand for teaching jobs—nearly 100% have employment at graduation. They also graduate recommended to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the preliminary single-subject credential in one of the following:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • English
  • French
  • General Science
  • Geosciences
  • Math
  • Physics
  • Spanish
  • Social Sciences
