### Recommended Program of Study: Integrated Teacher Preparation Program (ITPP) Pathway

The Integrated Teacher Preparation Program (ITPP) provides paths to 4-year science and math degrees that include a teaching credential and preparation for the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET). Students who are interested in middle or secondary education (grades 6-12) in California may earn a degree in mathematics while simultaneously completing requirements for a teaching credential. The degree integrates content knowledge and laboratory practices in the discipline, evidence-based teaching/learning theories, teaching performance expectations, and pre-student teaching clinical practice while satisfying baccalaureate degree requirements and CTC single subject credential program standards. There is some flexibility to meet individual needs. Students are encouraged to consult the ITPP website (http://www.sandiego.edu/itpp) and advisors (itpp@sandiego.edu) to ensure that their needs and interests will be met.

In addition to all courses for the mathematics major with a secondary education emphasis, students completing the ITPP pathway must also take the following teaching credential courses, following the Recommended Program of Study: Secondary Education Emphasis above.

Code | Title | Units |
---|---|---|

EDTE 300P | Diversity, Inclusion & Schooling | 3 |

EDTE 301P | Methods for Language & Literacy | 3 |
