Qualified applicants (those who hold a valid basic general education teaching credential as defined in California Education Code, Section 44203[e]) may obtain an additional credential, either multiple subject or single subject, or add an additional single subject content area, when they complete the requirements listed CL-621A

Fall 2013 will be the last time we will be offering the current methodology courses for teachers seeking to add a multiple or single subject credential to their existing credential(s).
The Education Department has posted an update under Program Information under “Regulation Changes.” We expect to develop revised methodology classes, but do not yet have a specific date that they will be available. You can contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and we can refer you to a school that is currently offering methodology coursework for your added authorization.
We are now offering the required reading class to fulfill the “developing English language skills for beginning readers” requirement.
Beginning in Fall 2013, UCSD Extension will begin offering courses to assist teachers with subject matter requirements (SMRs): subject-specific knowledge, skills, and abilities required of entry-level teachers seeking a teaching credential or authorization by taking the CSET. These courses, beginning with Biology will provide students with SMRs and practical advice on teaching the subjects to appropriate secondary audiences.
