Program Description

Master of Arts in Education

The MA program prepares candidates to assume advanced roles in the field of education. The coursework provides broad conceptions of curriculum theories and design, development, and instruction supported with evidence-based best practices. Students develop and engage in real-time intervention studies to demonstrate critical thinking and research writing skills. The program consists of a core of advanced coursework, electives, and a culminating experience (thesis, project, or comprehensive exam) that support advanced study in the field of education. There are 31 units of course work with a minimum of 21 semester units completed in residence. Candidates may apply to the MA program only or apply to both the MA in Education and Multiple Subject or Single Subject Credential. Those students who apply to the combined program must adhere to the requirements for both programs (e.g., GPA, continuous enrollment and course grade requirements). Students may also apply and complete the MA after completing a credential program.

Curriculum and Instruction Option

The MA in Education Curriculum and Instruction Option prepares candidates for specialized roles in the field of curriculum and instruction.

Dual Language Learning Option

The MA in Education Dual Language Learning Option focuses on bilingualism and biliteracy in Spanish in school and societal contexts. The program is designed to prepare teacher leaders to examine and refine their own pedagogy and instruction and to promote social justice through an inquiry approach in Spanish. Providing instruction in two languages, this approach develops students’ competencies in bilingualism, biliteracy, and biculturalism/multiculturalism. Students who complete this option can earn their Bilingual Authorization.

Transitional Kindergarten

The MA in Education Transitional Kindergarten Option prepares candidates for specialized roles in the field of teaching young children.

Pre-Admission Disclosure for Academic Programs Leading to Licensure or Credentialing

Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements. Information concerning licensure and credentialing requirements are available from the College of Education Dean's Office: COE 1490 - (310) 243-3510.

Preliminary Credential Programs

The Preliminary Multiple Subjects Credential authorizes its holder to teach in a self-contained classroom, usually grades kindergarten through six. The Single Subject Preliminary Credential authorizes its holder to teach in departmental classes, usually in the middle or high school. Both the Multiple and Single Subject programs fulfill the California state requirements for English Language Authorization and, for qualified applicants, the Bilingual Authorization in Spanish. Certification in other authorized languages is available by examination through CCTC.

Both Multiple Subjects and Single Subject programs offer a traditional student teaching option as well as a university intern option. Candidates enrolled in the University Intern Option are contracted teachers (without a preliminary credential) currently teaching K-12 students and are supervised for fieldwork in their own classroom by trained university supervisors and site-based coaches who provide support and guidance. Candidates enrolled in the Student Teaching Option are not contracted teachers and are assigned to master teachers in a public school setting for their supervised field experiences. In addition, student teachers receive support and guidance from a university supervisor (in some cases, the master teacher also serves as a university field supervisor).

Each program option is organized into phases, university semesters, that include courses and field experiences. The program sequence allows candidates to complete their coursework and exit requirements in one year if the candidate begins the program during the summer, when summer is offered.

Coursework and field experiences effectively prepare candidates to teach K-12 students and understand the contemporary conditions of schooling. Because the majority of teacher candidates enrolled in the TED credential program are, or will be, teaching in urban schools with multicultural and multilingual students, the program's coursework and field experiences are designed to prepare candidates to effectively meet the needs of those students. Courses are designed to address issues of second language learners and diverse styles of learning. The program provides extensive opportunities for candidates to learn to teach the content of the California K-12 academic content standards, to use state-adopted instructional materials, to assess student progress, and to apply these understandings in teaching K-12 students.

Through the carefully sequenced courses and field experiences, candidates develop a series of pedagogical competencies represented by the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs). Within each phase of the program, courses are designated to address specific TPEs that must be applied and practiced during each field experience. The TPEs are assessed throughout the program using fair, valid, and reliable methods and measures. There are ongoing formative assessments, embedded signature assignments, and a summative assessment, the California Teaching Performance Assessment (CalTPA).

CSU Dominguez Hills' credential programs are accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC, 1900 Capitol Street, Sacramento, CA, 95814.)

Note: Students who wish to teach in TK classrooms need 24 units in early childhood education.

Liberal Studies Students (Undergraduate Students)

Qualified undergraduate students may begin Phase One of the student teaching option during their senior year. They must apply and meet the admissions criteria and complete required documentation. They must consult with their undergraduate subject matter advisor and teacher education advisor and attend a College of Education Information Meeting.

Liberal Studies students at CSUDH with catalog rights starting in Fall 2016 complete all of the prerequisite Phase I classes as part of the major and apply to the program and Phase 2 upon graduation.

Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) - through LBS

The Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) is an option within the undergraduate Liberal Studies major wherein students earn a BA degree in Liberal Studies while also earning a Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential (Student Teaching Option). Students in this program can also earn their Bilingual Authorization. Students in ITEP must complete a "depth of study" and be accepted into the Multiple Subject Credential Program before enrolling in credential courses. The total number of units for the BA and credential is 135. Please see the Liberal Studies section of the Catalog, as well as an advisor in the Liberal Studies Office, for more details about the ITEP Integrated Option.

Undergraduate Students may begin Phase One of the preliminary credential program student teaching option during their senior year. They must apply and meet the admissions criteria and complete required documentation. They must consult with their undergraduate subject matter advisor and teacher education advisor and attend a College of Education Information Meeting.

Concurrent Enrollment in a Preliminary Credential Program and Masters in Education Program

The Teacher Education Division offers both Multiple and Single Subject credentials with the Master’s Degree in Education with Options in Curriculum and Instruction, Dual Language Learning, or Transitional Kindergarten. The program meets the needs of college graduates who wish to pursue careers in elementary or secondary education. Credential course work combines theory, methods, and field experiences that enrich candidates teaching practices. Master degree level courses include theory, field assignments, and a culminating experience that enhances candidates' professional expertise. Students who are enrolled in the combined program must adhere to the requirements for both program (e.g. GPA, continuous enrollment, and course grade requirements).

Teacher Induction Program (Clear Credential)

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) established a two-tier teaching credential structure. Upon completion of the basic credential requirements, a five-year preliminary credential is issued. The Teacher Induction Program in the College of Education leads to a Clear Credential. The Teacher Induction program focuses on the teacher's needs to expand and deepen knowledge, skills, and abilities targeted to the teacher's employment and career goals in their development as a teacher. An individual with a preliminary teaching credential may complete the Teacher Induction Program through the development of an Individual learning Plan (ILP). The ILP includes appropriate professional development which may include coursework designed to expand and apply the candidate's skills and knowledge base in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession. The ILP identifies the coursework, experiences, and tasks that must be completed and assessed while guiding the activities to support growth and improvement of professional practice.

Teacher Induction Program (Clear Credential) Admission Requirements

In addition to the general program admission requirements the following are specific for the Teacher Induction Program (Leading to a Clear Credential)

  1. Valid initial credential (e.g., California Level I or Preliminary; out of state candidates must have equivalent credentials);
  2. Verification of full-time employment in an appropriate teaching position in a public school district, non-public school (NPS), or charter school;
  3. Agreement by employer to provide a site-based mentor;
  4. Certificate of Clearance;
  5. Tuberculosis test and vaccination verification.

Features

The location of the University allows an ongoing, intensive interaction with a wide variety of local school districts, providing an excellent opportunity for working with a diverse population. Graduates of basic credential programs and the Masters of Arts in Education are in high demand by principals and superintendents who have come to respect the quality of the programs and the competence of their graduates. Teaching methods classes reflect the most up-to-date and effective approaches to instruction. The program is designed to meet the needs of individuals seeking only a preliminary credential, individuals seeking both a preliminary credential and a master’s degree, as well as full-time working professionals seeking a master’s degree. Most courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening.

Academic Advisement

Students will work with an advisor when they are admitted to the Teacher Education Division for a specific program (master's degree, credential, or certificate). Students who are uncertain about which program best meets their professional goals may meet with the department chairperson or faculty advisor to discuss the range of options.

The student must confer with the advisor each semester prior to registration to ensure that the student is taking the appropriate course work in the proper sequence.
