This program is not intended to provide teacher certification. Students wishing to pursue teacher certification should explore the Elementary Education program with an Early Childhood Endorsement.
This degree is designed for students transferring approximately 60 units from a regionally accredited institution. During the application process, the submission of a resume and goal statement is required for professional admission to the program.
