This Education, Secondary Education Concentration program at California State University Fullerton is designed to help career secondary classroom teachers upgrade their skills, become informed about new ideas in secondary teaching and prepare for curriculum leadership roles in public and private schools.


About this Degree

The graduate Education, Secondary Education Concentration program at California State University Fullerton builds upon teacher preparation in the Single Subject Credential Program. Whereas coursework in the credential program focuses on knowledge and skills necessary for a beginning secondary teacher, the graduate program will allow students to extend their knowledge and deepen their skills in curriculum design, instructional and assessment strategies, integration of technology and reflection skills.

The graduate programs in Secondary Education are delivered in two formats: 1) an online hybrid format, with 49 percent of courses delivered entirely via web-based instruction, and the other courses delivered partially via web-based instruction; 2) a 100 percent online format. The programs begin with a required one-unit prerequisite course.
