Faculty Information

The School of Education offers a full range of programs in education, including state approved credential programs leading to careers in elementary, secondary, special education, School Psychology and School Counseling. Programs leading to a credential are approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

In addition to the Preliminary Multiple Subject and Single Subject Teaching Credentials, students may also seek additional credential programs and a master’s degree through the School of Education. The Elementary Education major allows candidates to complete subject matter course work as well as the necessary credential coursework that provides the requisite knowledge and skills to teach in a multiple subject classroom. Students seeking a Single Subject Credential are required to major in the content area they plan to teach and may also declare Preliminary Single Subject Credential as their second major. Single Subject Candidates may satisfy Subject Matter Competence by completing an approved subject matter program at the University or by passing the appropriate state examination.

The credential programs offered by California Baptist University are state approved programs and are subject to revision at any time by state or federal law. Please contact the School of Education for more information. The University and the School of Education reserve the right to modify the teacher credentialing requirements when directed to do so by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

The Liberal Arts major in the Bachelor of Arts degree program is designed for students to explore knowledge from departments throughout the university.

The Early Childhood Studies major/minor prepares students for careers working with young children and their families in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals and home environments and for graduate study in related fields.

It is the mission of the Dr. Bonnie G. Metcalf School of Education of California Baptist University, a Great Commission University, to prepare professionals of high moral character and ethical behavior to serve throughout the world.

As part of the Great Commission, the faculty and staff are dedicated to their Christian responsibility outlined in Matthew 28: 19-20:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
