The mission of the College of Education is to engage faculty and students in instruction, scholarship, and professional experiences that provide subject-specific, pedagogical, and practical knowledge essential for planning, implementing, and assessing educationally-related activities.  We are committed to the development of diverse educational leaders who meet the needs of a multicultural and multilingual society.  Our programs are designed to advance the ethical behaviors and professional leadership capacities of students through participation in coursework, field experiences, and scholarly activities that together cultivate reflection and encourage innovation in educational settings.  We provide multiple and systematic opportunities for students to make connections between their professional responsibilities and their roles as educational leaders in the larger society, and to serve as advocates for children, families, and communities.

The College offers both initial and advanced credential and certificate programs that are approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC).

The Credential Processing Center (CPC) in the College of Education serves as the campus liaison to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and handles education credential matters. The CPC disseminates credential information,  including requirements and regulations, to campus staff, faculty, students, prospective candidates, and the general public. Individuals from out-of-state or out-of-country are advised in the CPC. Credentialed teachers may also obtain up-to-date renewal information at the CPC.

The CPC evaluates applications for the Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist credential programs. The CPC verifies Subject Matter Preparation Programs (waiver) for students who will attend another institution to complete their credential program. The CPC evaluates, verifies, and recommends to the Commission all basic multiple, single subject, and education specialist teaching credentials and all professional clear, advanced, and services credentials.

The CCTC has approved the University’s programs leading to the credentials listed in the following section. For specific and current information on these credentials, please contact the identified department office.
