MS in Education plus Dual Teacher Preparation Programs

Dept. of Education Banner


Dual Credential candidates earn both an Education Specialist: Preliminary Mild/Moderate and a Multiple Subject or Single Subject Preliminary Credential concurrently. You will be required to complete coursework in both credential areas and participate in supervised student teaching or intern assignments in special education and general education classrooms. These 65-unit programs are completed through the transition (part-time) format. These teacher preparation programs culminate in a MS in Education, Curriculum and Instruction degree.



Dominican has been a wonderful place for me to realize my life-long dream to become a teacher. I am especially grateful to the faculty of the Special Ed and Multiple Subjects Credential program as they are patient, supportive, master teachers for always being there to go the extra mile.
