teaching in the public schools. In most cases, the requirements for the major must be adjusted to accommodate an Approved Single Subject Matter Preparation Program, those courses in a single subject which are required for entrance into teaching credential programs at this and other universities. A list of the courses required for teacher preparation in various subjects is available in department offices, as well as in the Credential Bulletin published by the College of Education. Students who are considering teaching as a career are urged to contact the department's credential adviser early in their planning, in order to identify the specific courses that satisfy requirements for both the major and the Subject Matter Preparation Program, and to arrange for assessment of subject matter competency. The credential adviser also informs them about other pre-teaching requirements they may wish to fulfill before graduation.
