Multiple Subject (Elementary School) Teaching Credential

The Multiple Subject Credential (MSC) is the teaching credential required to work in self-contained classrooms, usually in grades Tk-6. The SFSU MSC program prepares teachers to work effectively in multilingual, racially, and culturally diverse classrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Our faculty and student body are committed to creating a more socially just world through education. Graduates of our program become part of a large, strong network of teacher leaders in our region.

We offer a variety of pathways for completing the Multiple Subject Credential, including bilingual authorization in Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin and the option to combine earning and MA degree and completion of the MSC program. Please explore our available options to decide what’s right for you!
