Program Description:
Graduates of the single subject teaching credential program are licensed to teach a specific content area to middle school and high school students. The program prepares teachers to become leaders in transformative education, an evolutionary process of change by which schooling practices are the foundations of the transfor­mative process, a process that allows teachers to evaluate current school practices and imagine teaching and learning in new ways.  One-year and two-year student teaching tracks are available, as well as two-year in­ternship option. Courses are available at both the Palm Desert campus and San Ber­nardino campus.
