Teacher Education

If you are considering a career in teaching, you will find that it is a profession like no other. Teaching is an art, a science, a way of life, a vocation, an inspiration, and a passion.

As a teacher, you will experience the joy of making a difference in the lives of your students on a daily basis. You get to share in the wonder and excitement as you help children learn about themselves and discover the world around them.

You will also become a lifelong learner, digging deeper into your subject matter and incorporating new ideas in your own classroom. Every day will be different, holding a unique set of challenges and rewards. By becoming a teacher, you will change your own life and touch countless others.

The Department of Teacher Education at California State University, Bakersfield prepares highly qualified teachers and professionals to teach in the K-12 public schools and to work with children and families in other educational settings.

Our department offers both Single Subject and Multiple Subject teaching credential programs.

Courses are offered at CSUB’s two campuses: Bakersfield Main Campus and Antelope Valley.

The quarter and semester I spent in the credential program were definitely challenging, but with hard work and the support from you, my colleagues, professors, and everyone in the credential program I was able to successfully complete all of my courses and requirements. Thank you! Close Quote
