Education - Secondary Education Credential, M.Ed.

  • Application Deadline
  • 12 months
University rank #601 (WUR) , CA,
A Master's in Learning and Teaching with a Secondary Education Credential prepares you for a fulfilling career as a middle school or high school teacher. And it supports your goal of making a difference in students' lives and in their communities at large.


Students of the program can choose between an intensive one-year format or two-year format of study. Along the way, you'll forge connections between theory and practice, interweaving coursework with thoughtfully designed field experiences. Both classroom work and hands-on student teaching incorporate a strong sense of social justice and a determination to step outside our own cultures and comfort levels.

Once students complete the program, they're in high demand for teaching jobs—nearly 100% have employment at graduation. They also graduate recommended to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the preliminary single-subject credential.
