Program Overview

Engage your passion for education and earn a master’s degree and teaching credential at the same time with the National University Master of Education with a Multiple or Single Subjects Teaching Credential. This program is designed for teaching students committed to instructional leadership in the P-12 settings. Courses meet the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) requirements for a Preliminary Multiple or Single Subjects teaching credential and meet the requirements for a master’s degree. A variety of specializations allow you to focus on particular areas of interest within the education field. Students who seek a master's degree but do not need the Preliminary Multiple or Single Subjects teaching credential, or those who already hold a Multiple or Single Subject teaching credential, should enroll in the Master of Arts in Teaching.

Program highlights:

  • Gain the knowledge and skills needed to make subject matter engaging and comprehensible for all P-12 learners, including those with diverse learning needs
  • Understand what it takes to plan, create, and maintain effective learning experiences for all students
  • Learn the legal, ethical, and professional standards for P-12 educators
  • Enhance your analysis and application of educational research, best practices, and academic writing to improve student learning
