The Kremen School of Education and Human Development offers three basic credentials: Multiple Subject (elementary), Single Subject (secondary), and Education Specialist (Special Education). The majority of our programs are post-baccalaureate (post-bac), non-degree programs, except for the South Valley Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) that blends our undergraduate Liberal Studies degree with the Multiple Subject credential requirements. In addition, we offer a number of advanced credentials, some of which are housed in other colleges but offered under the auspices of the Kremen School.
In addition, we serve as "homebase" for the Fresno State professional education unit (The Unit). We are a single unified Unit, but some programs/credentials are housed in other colleges, including Agriculture Specialist, Speech Language Pathology, School Counselor, School Nursing, School Psychologist, and School Social Worker. At Kremen, we work with colleagues whose programs are already nationally accredited: The School Social Work/CWA PPS program is part of the 60-unit Masters in Social Work program which is nationally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the School Psychology Ed.S. School Psychology program is fully approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) through 2027 under the CAEP umbrella, the Speech-Language Pathology program holds national accreditation from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASLHA), and the Deaf/HH Education holds national accreditation through the Council of Education of the Deaf (CED).
