Have you always felt driven towards teaching? A desire to educate and inspire others. If so, entering a teaching credential program is the place for you.

We offer multiple paths to becoming a teacher. If you want to teach kindergarten or elementary school, you can earn a Multiple Subject Credential. Or if you want to teach middle or high school, you can earn a Single Subject Credential. Lastly, if you want to teach Special Education, then you will want to earn an Education Specialist Credential. We also offer a Dual Credential, which is a combination of a Multiple Subject and Education Specialist Credential.

With the teacher shortage still widespread throughout California, there is a high need for hiring teachers, especially for mathematics, science, special education and bilingual teachers. 

Here at Fresno State, we prepare our future teachers to enter the field of education with confidence and preparation. APPLY NOW!

Pre-Admission Disclosure: Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements. Information concerning licensure and credentialing requirements are available from Sherri Nakashima, sherrin@csufresno.edu, 559.278.0300.
