# Single Subject Matter Preparation Programs

Single Subject Matter Preparation Programs approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) are alternatives to the subject matter examinations and act as appropriate subject matter preparation for the Single Subject Teaching Credential. Please note the programs in Science are not alternatives to the required subject matter examinations. Rather, the courses in the Science programs prepare students to take the exams.

The CSUEB Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Physical Education has been approved by the CCTC for students who began taking one or more of the courses listed below by June 1, 2010. The Physical Education program must be completed by June 1, 2015.

- Mathematics
- Physical Education
- Science (Programs to Prepare for Exams)
- Social Science

## Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics offers two preparation programs for future mathematics teachers; the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics and the Subject Matter Program in Foundational-level Mathematics. Undergraduate students interested in teaching mathematics at the middle or high school level are strongly encouraged to complete the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics. Completion of the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics establishes subject matter competency in mathematics for future teachers to teach all mathematics at the K-12 level. Completion of the Subject Matter Program in Foundational-level Mathematics establishes subject matter competency in mathematics for future teachers to teach mathematics at the middle school level and for some mathematics courses at the high school level.

**Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics**

Completion of the Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics is certified by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. A student need not be a mathematics major to complete this program; however, students who complete the mathematics major with Option C (Mathematics Teaching) should find it relatively easy to meet the requirements of the program, as noted in the description of Option C requirements in the undergraduate Mathematics chapter. In addition to the required mathematics courses, a year of education courses and practice teaching is required before the California Secondary Teaching Credential in Mathematics can be granted. Seventy-one quarter units are required in the Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics.

## Science

Students can follow one of two pathways to fulfill the content requirements for a single subject credential in Science: 1) Complete a CCTC-approved Subject Matter Program from an accredited California University; or, 2) Pass the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET).

CSUEB currently does not have a CCTC-approved Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Science. We do, however, offer degree programs and courses that prepare students to take the CSET exams.

Further information on obtaining a single subject credential in Science through CSUEB is available at the Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, websites.

## Social Science

Completion of the Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Social Science is certified by the Department of History. The program may be completed by students in any major, but overlaps major requirements in several Social Science fields such as History, Political Science, Geography, and Economics. The Single Subject Matter Preparation program in Social Science requires 84 units. This program has been designed to meet CCTC standards.
