Searching teens become Inspir(Ed.)

Inspiring students is a tough task. But for some teachers, it almost comes naturally.

If you have that spark — that extra something to ignite the pursuit of knowledge in others — you probably have interest in the Single Subject Credential Program.

After obtaining a credential, CSU Stanislaus’ Teacher Education graduates are qualified to teach grades 6-12 in a specified content area.


The program’s core courses address foundational aspects of teaching, such as educational philosophy, learning psychology, and curriculum theory as well as more practical dimensions of teaching such as student assessment, classroom management, and instructional planning.

Many regional institutions offer Single Subject Credentials, but aspiring junior high and high school teachers are hard-pressed to find programs that offer the affordability, timeliness, convenience, and depth of preparation that CSU Stanislaus’ Single Subject Credential offers.

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