For each of the universities noted, the reference to Traditional Major implies the choice of major(s) most commonly selected by the prospective teacher. However, prospective elementary teachers may pursue other Bachelor Degree options, pass the required CSET (California Subject Exam for Teachers) exam, enter a teacher credential program, and similarly reach their goal of becoming an elementary teacher.

In addition to the Multiple Subject and Education Specialist Credential, a student may wish to also pursue the Foundational Level Credentials in Math (FLM) and Science (FLGS). The FLM and FLGS Credentials allow a teacher to teach Math and Science typically in 7th - 9th grades without having pursued a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics or Science. These credentials can be added to a Multiple Subject or Education Specialist Credential or may be earned independently.

Articulation requirements for all partner schools can be found at the Teacher Preparation Office (C-350) or Counseling and Career Services.
