MS in Education Degree and Teacher Preparation Programs

Bertrand Hall Sign

Find fulfillment in a classroom. First ours, then your own.

Dominican’s teacher preparation programs are approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) to prepare and recommend candidates for credentials at two different sites: San Rafael and Ukiah.  Our programs meet current California state credentialing requirements related to technology, working effectively with English learners, and students with special needs.  All programs culminate in an MS in Education degree with the completion of additional units.

Our accelerated (full-time) and transition (part-time)  class offerings, combined with supervised student teaching and internship options, provide candidates a quality MS in Education degree program that fits their needs and schedule.

My student teaching experience launched my powerfully into my career as an educator. I am so grateful to Dominican for their positive relationships with local elementary schools because they have allowed me to be the teacher I have always dreamed to be. -- Amanda Grey ’10
