Multiple Subject Teaching Credential
Program Format: On-Ground
Our Teacher Preparation Program is designed to prepare candidates for the challenges and opportunities of teaching at the elementary and middle school levels (K-8) of California’s highly diverse student population. The program provides the high-quality training and experience necessary to qualify candidates for the California Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential (SB2042 Credential). Integrated coursework and hands-on teaching experiences emphasize effective, result-oriented teaching strategies, differentiated instruction, and the practical, real-world skills necessary to manage classrooms within differing organizational structures (e.g., combination classes and block classes).
The fundamental purpose of the teacher preparation program is to develop the next generation of teachers, who by nature will be responsible for educating our children and helping to create productive citizens in a democracy. As such, teacher candidates are held to the highest levels of professional and ethical conduct.
At Humphreys University, we educate motivated and determined students who desire a practical, affordable, and accessible academic program. To accommodate our working students, we offer our courses online, evenings, and in hybrid formats. We operate on an eleven-week quarter system with four quarters per year. You can start the credential program at the start of any of our four terms. The application process is easy and counselors are available walk you through the financial aid process.
Students in the MSTC program will be able to…
- Create lesson plans and units that incorporate student’s interest to maximize engagement and learning comprehension;
- Integrate culturally relevant curriculum based on equity and collaboration;
- Create a positive classroom culture built on respect, equality, and honoring each students’ experience;
