Teacher Education in CA
  • How do I become a teacher in California?
  • Complete the State requirements (see Application
  • 1-2 year preparation program to obtain your
    preliminary credential (offered here at UCI and
    other institutions)
  • 2 years to complete an Induction Program
    (Beginning Teacher Support Assessment BTSA)
    to clear your credential. (Your employer will
    help you obtain this.)
  • Continuous professional development

Is There a Need for Teachers?
  • Youve probably seen some of the layoffs that
    have occurred in the past year or so, and are
    wondering, Is there going to be a job out there
    for me? Here are some factors you may consider
    about teaching.
  • Retiring Teachers many teachers born in the
    baby-boom era are now ready to retire.
  • Studies project a need for 300,000 new teachers
    in California in the next 10 years.
  • Certain fields are always in need of teachers
    Math, Sciences, and Special Education
  • The Federal government has set Education as a
    priority for its budget and stimulus, promising a
    fruitful future.
  • Making yourself more marketable is also a
    consideration in this time. You will do this by
    going to a good school, and then also by adding
    supplementary credentials (usually by merely
    taking the CSET and methods course in that area!)
    Come to an info session for details!

M.A.T. Masters of Art in Teaching
The MAT in Education is a full-time program for
people seeking careers in teaching and who are
interested in earning a Masters degree and a
teaching credential. Most MAT students complete
the program in 15 months, two summers and an
academic year. There is the option of entering
the MAT Program in the summer immediately
following the completion of teaching credential
coursework at UCI. However, potential applicants
who have competed their credential elsewhere or
earlier than immediately preceding the teaching
credential program will not be considered. The
program of study includes six core MAT courses,
one of the UCI teaching credential programs
(single or multiple subject), and a comprehensive
exam. Students participating in the Spring Start
Intern Program can add the MAT following the
Intern Program is completed. While the MAT
Program is a full-time program, students can work
in the summers, but find it more difficult to fit
in part-time work during the credential
program. Courses are taught by Department of
Education research faculty and expert lecturers.
This blend of research and practice (praxis)
prepares future teachers for the academic,
social, and policy challenges of teaching in
todays diverse urban and suburban
classrooms How is the MAT different from the
Credential? The program is two summers in
addition to the credential. The MAT is a Masters
of Arts in Teaching, which is an advanced degree,
and increases your salary when you are hired.

Spring Start Intern Program
What is theSpring Start Program? The Spring
Start Student Teaching and Intern Program begins
in spring with intense fieldwork and student
teaching and continues in the summer with courses
only. Then, depending on the demonstrated level
of competence and the availability of jobs, you
might receive an offer for paid intern teaching.
If you are successful in fieldwork but dont
receive an internship, you can student teach in
the fall. For this program, the bulk of
coursework is front-loaded in Spring and Summer.
For further information see http//
Interested in an Internship? Intern teachers are
selected by partner school districts. Candidates
who are selected for internships typically have
these characteristics - Previous formal
teaching experience such as substitute teaching,
private school, Peace Corps, adult education -
Extensive informal teaching experience such as
college teaching assistant, summer camp,
corporate training - Strong organizational
skills - Self-directedness - Motivation to
succeed in a high-demand environment - Strong
subject matter competence (passed CSET) If you
become an intern, you will be in the program for
five quarters. You will be eligible for your
preliminary credential at the end of your
