Obtaining another general education credential broadens a teacher's qualifications and provides greater opportunity for career advancement. The Multiple Subject Authorization makes it possible to achieve this without completing another teacher credentialing program. Comprised of just two additional classes, this authorization is designed for students that already hold a Single Subject Credential and want to teach in both multiple and single subject environments.
Program curriculum provides the foundations of teaching literacy and language in K-8 classrooms. The student then selects one course from specialized areas of interest including mathematics, science, or history, social science and visual/performing arts.
A candidate who has completed the requirements for the Single Subject Credential can add a Multiple Subject Authorization to the credential by:
- Taking EDMU 521;
- Taking EDMU 523, or 524 or 525 (3 credits);
- Demonstrating subject matter competency by passing the CSET Multiple Subject exam.
- Passing the RICA examination.
