Stanislaus State offers state approved Subject Matter Preparation Programs (SMPP) in the areas/majors of Art, English, Mathematics, Social Sciences, and Spanish. Subject Matter Preparation Programs are undergraduate teacher preparation majors that meet [single] subject matter competency requirements. Students who graduate from a SMPP are not required to take the California Subject Matter Examinations (CSET's) as they will have met subject matter competency requirements through coursework.
