Adding an additional single subject authorization broadens a teacher's qualifications and provides greater opportunity for career advancement. The Single Subject Authorization makes it possible to achieve this without completing another teacher credentialing program. Comprised of just one additional class, this authorization is designed for students that already hold a Multiple Subject Credential that want to teach in both single and multiple subject environments at a junior high or high school level.
Candidates who have completed the requirements for the Teaching Credential Multiple Subject can add a Single Subject Authorization to their credential by:
- Taking EDSU 533 (3 credits)
- Demonstrating subject matter competence through coursework or by passing the appropriate CSET.
