Added Authorization, Multiple Subject Credential

This authorization program, comprised of just two courses, is designed for teachers who already hold a Single Subject Credential in California and want to teach in both multiple and single-subject environments.

Multiple Subject Program Overview

Authorized by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the Multiple Subject Added Authorization provides additional training to teachers who have already earned a Single Subject Credential in California and want to expand their knowledge to teach multiple subjects. You’ll gain a foundation for teaching literacy and language in K-8 classrooms. Plus, you’ll select one course from a specialized area of interest — mathematics, science, history, social science, or visual/performing arts — for additional focus. Candidates will need to demonstrate subject matter competency in multiple subjects.

As a student, you will:

  •  Develop skills in teaching reading
  • Learn how to teach mathematics, science, or history, social science and visual/performing arts to K-8 students
  • Gain the expertise to teach in multiple subject, K-8 classrooms.
