World Languages Credential
(California residents only)
Students who pursue the World Languages Credential add-on will complete an additional 4 units of coursework for a minimum of 28 units. Students must reside in California in order to be eligible to pursue a World Languages credential.
Please note that students pursuing the MAT–TESOL online credential track may need to travel more than 20 miles for an eligible site/World Languages-credentialed master teacher, depending on the placement location.
Note regarding felonies and misdemeanors: In order to obtain a teaching credential, the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) requires credential applicants to disclose convictions of a felony or misdemeanor. While a felony or misdemeanor will not necessarily prevent you from being admitted to the program, you may not be eligible to participate in student teaching which is a requirement of the program.
