The Department of Elementary Education prepares skilled, transformative educators to teach and become leaders in culturally and linguistically diverse schools. We guide and support educators to develop a pedagogy of caring and cultural responsiveness, and to teach for social justice and equity for children and their families. Our Multiple Subject Credential and Master of Arts programs provide current educational theories, innovative teaching practices, and guided field experiences in diverse schools. The department’s Multiple Subject Credential, including the Bilingual Authorization Programs, certify candidates with their Preliminary Credential to teach in California schools. The curriculum in the MSC and M.A. graduate programs reflect the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs) State Standards and Common Core Standards. Our MA programs prepare educational leaders to transform learning environments to support all students’ success academically and socially.
