Single Subject Credential


A Single Subject Credential authorizes the holder to teach in a departmentalized classroom. A departmentalized classroom is one in which the teacher specializes in his/her subject area and teaches that single subject only. Single subjects are taught primarily at the middle or secondary, grades 7-12 level, but some subjects (i.e., art, music, and physical education) may be taught by a single subject teacher at the elementary level. Upon completion of the Single Subject Credential program, you will be awarded the SB2042 Preliminary Single Subject Credential with English Language Learner Authorization embedded.
