English Single Subject Program

The Single Subject Credential Program (English). A program in the College of Education that candidates complete to earn their Single Subject Credential in English, which allows them to teach English at the middle and high school levels in the State of California.

English Education. The name of the B.A. option within the Department of English that provides students who plan to pursue a single subject credential in English with subject matter competency. This is also considered  a  subject matter waiver program because it waives students who complete the subject matter coursework in English Education from taking the CSET exam.    Individuals who plan to take the CSET exam in English are expected to have passed the CSET exam before applying the the CSULB Single Subject Credential Program. Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the general information about the Single Subject Credential Program (provided in great detail on the SSCP website) before contacting Professor Keirn.  If you have already applied to the university,  please note that Professor Keirn does not have admission information. Please contact either Enrollment Services or the Single Subject Credential Program directly for adimission information.
