Our social science credential program is designed to prepare
students to teach in the secondary classroom levels. The
coursework addresses the acquisition of effective teaching
strategies, the implementation of curriculum based on the
California framework for social studies, and the use of
educational theories to inform the practical application of
teaching methodology. Students have the additional opportunity to
participate in workshops and seminars offered by the UC Davis
Area 3 History Project. The History Project offers a multitude of
resources assembled by teachers for teachers.
The coursework during the first year is focused and intensive,
enabling you to complete the courses and student-teaching
component required for the Teaching Credential in less than a
year. To view a list of the courses you will take, please click
