​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 can choose from the following tracks: 

18-month (Spring)

1-year (Summer)

2-year (Fall)

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 a preliminary single-subject credential (7th-12th grade) in:
