M.A. in Education with Preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential
Our Master of Arts in Education prepares students to take the next step in their professional journey by combining advanced study in Education theory and practice with the academic requirements for the California Multiple Subject English Learner (MSEL) Teaching Credential. The program is designed to build on the foundation that students bring with them to the classroom and to enhance the knowledge and skills they have acquired at the undergraduate level and/or through their prior professional experience.
In keeping with Pacific Oaks College's emphasis on experiential learning, coursework for the joint degree/credential program combines both classroom learning and fieldwork at more than 25 local public schools, enabling students to draw powerful connections between theory and practice. Students are prepared to be advocates for diversity and inclusion in education. They develop a sophisticated understanding of the social, political, and cultural contexts of child and human development, preparing them to be effective advocates for democracy in education at the school, district, and state level.
