Single Subject Credential - Definition & Meaning

A Single Subject Credential is a type of teaching credential that authorizes the holder to teach a specific subject or content area in California's middle schools and high schools. It is one of the credential types that educators can obtain to teach in the state's K-12 public education system.

To earn a Single Subject Credential, an individual typically completes a teacher preparation program focused on the subject they intend to teach, which includes coursework and student teaching experiences in that subject area. The credential is subject-specific and may be issued in areas such as English, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign languages, and more.

Holders of Single Subject Credentials are qualified to teach their designated subject area to students in grades 6 through 12. This credential type is essential for educators who want to specialize in teaching a specific subject at the secondary school level.
