However, most multiple subject teachers in California teach in grades K-6.

Single Subject Teaching Credentials

You will earn a Single Subject teaching credential in your specific subject which authorizes you to provide instruction in only that subject to students in grades twelve and below, including preschool, and in classes organized primarily for adults.

Credential with a Bilingual Authorization in Spanish or Mandarin

A Bilingual Authorization allows elementary and secondary teachers to provide instruction to English learners communicating in the target language of Spanish or Mandarin:

  1. Content instruction delivered in the student’s primary language
  2. Academic instruction delivered in English designed specifically for English learners
  3. Instruction for English language development.

Teachers who earn the Bilingual Authorization in addition to the elementary or secondary credential are in great demand in the public schools.
