Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Multiple Subject Credential program to educate future teachers for California's schools.  Program coursework is structured to promote reflective practice as credential candidates strive to understand the relationship of educational theory to the development of the individual learner, issues of cultural diversity, the needs of local communities, and the demands of modern society.
