Pick Your Subject

Below is a list of each single subject credential offered and the department's individual requirements, as they vary based on the subject you are pursuing. To contact a specific department, view our contact list. In addition, potential candidates may only apply to ONE of the academic subject matter areas listed below. 

All candidates interested in pursuing a Single Subject teaching credential must complete EHD 50 (or equivalent) and CI 149 BEFORE beginning the credential program.

Note 1:  CI 149 is offered every semester for admitted Fresno State students.  Non-Fresno State students will need to take CI 149  through “Open University” or through the Office of “Continuing and Global Education (CGE) during the regular, winter, and/or summer session (CGE INFORMATION LINK).

Note 2: Due to the academic subject matter area requirements for the state-mandated assessment expectations of the FAST for Single Subject Credential Program Candidates, academic subject matter area credential option "transfers" within academic subject matter areas are NOT allowed.
