MCC 2-Year Program
MCC two-year candidates have the option of pursuing a secondary (middle/high school) subject credential, and may also complete requirements towards an education specialist (mild/moderate) credential if interested in inclusive/special education. Additionally, candidates may pursue an education specialist (mild/moderate) credential with a secondary pathway. The 48-unit program gives candidates the opportunity to complete the Teacher Performance Assessment and an action research project as a merged capstone. Candidates undertake field experiences each semester which are aligned with the courses for the semester and culminate in a full-time student teaching experience.
The Master’s Credential Cohort program uses a cohort model in alignment with its vision of providing candidates with opportunities to enhance the quality of their experiences by learning from each other.
