Pre-Credential Track

All credential programs at CSUF are completed through the College of Education.

The History department is part of an undergraduate program called the Single Subject Matter Prep Program in Social Sciences (the SSMP), which has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Students who complete this program will have demonstrated subject matter competency in History as required for a California Single Subject Credential.

For more information on the SSMP in History, please contact the department's Pre-Credential Adviser.
