Teaching Credential Programs

Changing The Way We Prepare Teachers

The Kremen School of Education and Human Development is dedicated to improving the quality of teacher preparation and it all starts with the student.

We provide unique experiences for credential candidates to become more closely connected to students and educators in local school districts. Our dedicated district partnerships are essential in producing quality teachers.
