Developing minds are Motivat(Ed.)

Elementary teachers have a unique calling. They need to do more than educate students
— they must motivate and captivate.

Now, if that sounds like a task suited to you, maybe you have what is needed to teach in elementary school.

Teacher Education at Stanislaus State offers a variety of graduate programs
— many of which can be completed in a year — to equip the state’s future K-6 teachers with the keys needed to unlock the potential in children.

The Multiple Subject Credential Program is a gateway for many elementary
teachers. It is a 36-unit program that includes student teaching. The program
can be completed in a year.

There are several institutions where aspiring teachers can attain their credential.
Stanislaus State stands out because of its intended mix of Multiple Subject Credential Program’s affordability, timeliness, convenience, and depth of preparation.

NOTE: To apply to the MSCP, you must first apply to the Stanislaus State Graduate Program. This is a separate application process. Students may not be admitted to the MSCP without university graduate admission.
