Multiple Subject (Elementary)
Thank you for your interest in the Multiple Subject Credential Program at CSU Stanislaus.
The Multiple Subject Credential Program consists of three parts: 1) Co-requisite Courses, 2) Program Courses, and 3) Student Teaching. Full-time students can complete the program in one year. Students may also complete the program on a part-time basis, but must be prepared to be full-time students during the final semester in order to complete student teaching. Student teaching at CSU Stanislaus requires a placement of 16 weeks at a school site. All placements begin when the school day begins. Students are assigned to the school all day (M-F) and come to one of the campuses one day per week to take a three-hour course on classroom management and professional practices. The credential program assigns the school and makes every effort to make the placement near each student’s place of residence.
Before students in the traditional credential program can begin student teaching, they must complete all co-requisite requirements, and pass CSET Multiple Subject Examination and meet the Basic Skills Requirement (CSET writing, CBEST, or EPT/ELM scores). They must also complete program courses with a "B" average and no grade lower than a "C" in order to advance to the Student Teaching Semester.
All students (non-emphasis or BCLAD emphasis) are required to have knowledge in second language learning and acquisition and experiences teaching English learners.
Integrated Methods and Practice Program
The Integrated Methods and Practice Program offers students an opportunity to student teach part-time for a full year and to take courses at a slower pace. Rather than having all the coursework completed before full-time student teaching, in the Integrated Program, students take courses concurrently with part-time student teaching. At the end of the year, students will have completed the same requirements as the basic program; however, theory and practice were integrated throughout the full year. Students must pass all parts of the CSET Examinations to qualify for this program. Placements begin only in August and students must commit for the full year. If interested, students may request this option at the MSCP Orientation meeting.
