Single Subject Credential Program
The School of Education’s Single Subject Program is looking for leaders motivated to challenge education inequity and make a difference. If you are ready to learn how to create classrooms where all students learn and reach their potential, then bring your aspirations to Cal Poly.
Our approach to developing teaching excellence requires a strong field experience and places you in a sixth to 12th grade classroom on the first day of school. We combine this fieldwork with rigorous coursework designed to integrate the latest pedagogical skills, knowledge, and understanding into your classroom.
If you appreciate challenge, seek opportunity, and want to impact lives and communities, then come to Cal Poly and together we’ll make the world a better place.
