The California Teaching Credential programs prepare multiple subject, single subject, and special education teacher candidates who demonstrate knowledge of theory and practice by making informed decisions leading to exemplary instruction for all learners.
Qualified candidates may combine teaching credential program units with further study to obtain a Master’s in Education degree.
Concordia is also one of the very few institutions currently offering an Induction program, approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) for Single Subject, Multiple Subject, and Education Specialist Clear Credentials.
