Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative
Remember your favorite teacher?
TEACH and someone will remember YOU!
Teaching is a highly rewarding and fulfilling career! It offers an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children and young adults.
The Kremen School of Education and Human Development has outstanding teacher preparation programs. You will learn cutting edge teaching methods that will prepare you to make learning exciting and challenging for your students. The program's outstanding and experienced faculty, supervisors, and master teachers will become your mentors as you move from university student to classroom teacher.
Do you have a passion for math or science?
You can share that excitement with the next generation by being a teacher!
The demand for fully-credentialed mathematics and science teachers is significant and is expected to increase dramatically as more teachers retire.
The College of Science and Mathematics and the Kremen School of Education and Human Development offer excellent preparation and support for prospective mathematics and science teachers! For more information about earning your initial teaching credential at Fresno State, call the Education and Student Services Center: (559) 278-0300.
If you currently hold a Multiple Subject or a Single Subject Teaching Credential and wish to pursue an additional authorization in Single Subject mathematics and/or science (including a Foundational-Level credential), please contact Dr. Carol Fry Bohlin, Director of the Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI) at Fresno State. MSTI can help you reach your professional goals! We offer high quality, in-depth workshops that review the subject matter content included on the CSET subtests for mathematics and science. All workshops are taught by talented instructors, many of whom are faculty members at Fresno State. We also offer middle school science and mathematics methods courses, reimbursement of CSET and credential application fees, membership in professional associations such as the California Mathematics Council and the California Science Teachers Association, and financial support for attending science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education conferences!
