Our English credential program prepares you for teaching English and/or ELD (English Language Development) at the secondary classroom levels. All coursework builds on recent research and actual classroom practices. We maintain close ties to the UC Davis Area 3 Writing Project as a critical resource for new English teachers.
The coursework during the first year is focused and intensive, enabling you to complete the courses and student-teaching component required for the CA Single Subject Teaching Credential in less than a year. This subject area tends to be popular and therefore we encourage you to apply early.
