TCSJ offers the following Master's Degree Program in Education* Concentrations:
- Early Education
- Educational Inquiry
- Education Leadership & School Development (with or without Administrative Services Credential)
- Environmental Literacy
- Special Education
*The Master's in Education Program is NOT a Teaching Credential Program. Attend an informational meeting for the IMPACT Teaching Credential Program OR Teacher Residency Program if you are interested in obtaining a teaching credential.
The IMPACT Preliminary Teaching Credential Program is an alternative pathway to acquire a teaching credential (CCTC). Teachers who begin their teaching career with an Intern Credential, are employed and paid by the school district as the "teacher of record" for their classrooms, work closely with a Support Supervisor and attend evening classes in a cohort model twice a week for two years to earn a Preliminary Teaching Credential.
Attend an informational meeting to learn about program requirements, tuition, how to apply and more.
In-person and online meetings will be held on the following dates:
*If you have a teaching credential and want to add an authorization/credential, we recommend that you contact a program advisor for advisement:
- Beth Jara, Education Specialist IMPACT Program Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Michele Badovinac, IMPACT Program Director and Single Subject Program Coordinator, email@example.com
- Michelle Jones, Multiple Subjects IMPACT Program Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to TCSJ's IMPACT Intern Primary Teaching Credential Program, TCSJ now offers "Residency at TCSJ," a one-year traditional option to acquire a preliminary teaching credential. The teacher residency model requires a year-long intensive placement with a master teacher - which is significantly longer than other traditional programs that require a short-term student teaching experience. The program is constructed around the schedule of the P-12 schools, thus enabling an authentic, year-long clinical experience with a master teacher, who serves as the residency candidate on-site, classroom mentor.
The application period is now closed for 2020. Informational meetings to learn about the program for the 2021 school year will begin in the fall.
* Must have at least four years of CA credentialed experience to begin the Administrative Services Credential Program.
