Our California Teacher Credential program can be described as Rich, Rigorous, and Rewarding. The rich learning environment offers deep and meaningful learning experiences. Our rigorous courses are designed to provide you with best practices and experience with the most current trends in education today. Our rewarding program prepares you to fulfill your calling.
Blended courses feature both face-to-face and online learning.
Our Block I blended schedule allows students to come to campus two evenings a week for face-to-face classes (three evenings a week for summer session I). Block I classes are paired and alternate between face-to-face and synchronous, online content each week.
This delivery system was designed to meet the needs of students who prefer the flexibility provided by an online program.
The single subject credential is for teachers who desire to teach one subject to groups of students at the high school or middle school levels. The single subject credential areas Concordia offers are:
Required: 36 semester hours for Single Subject Credential
Successful completion of Block I courses is a prerequisite for the courses below.
Apply now, read about Test Requirements, or attend the next Info Night.
Candidates will complete coursework and fieldwork leading to two separate credentials for Single Subject, authorizing candidates to teach one subject to groups of students at the middle to the high school level, and an Education Specialist credential that authorizes candidates to teach students (K-12) with mild to moderate disabilities.
The Dual Credential requires one additional semester of 11 units. To work toward a dual credential, you will complete a carefully designed sequence of coursework for both programs, followed by one semester of student teaching. Half of your student teaching will be in a general education setting and half will be in a special education setting.
Undergraduate students will need to declare the Dual Credential option by the middle of Block I classes: October 15, March 15 or June 15.
