Combined Credential and Master's Program

Cal Poly Pomona offers credential students the opportunity to pursue both their teaching credential and Master’s of Arts in Education in a combined program, so they can enter the teaching field with advanced knowledge and skills. 

Teacher-credential candidates may transfer up to three approved post-baccalaureate teacher-credential (EDU) courses towards the master’s degree. Interested students should contact the program coordinator through the CEIS Graduate Studies Office (Bldg. 6-219) to obtain a Roadmap of courses. Change of Degree forms should be submitted during Clinical Practice and are available in the CEIS Graduate Studies Office (6-219) or online by downloading the form

Teacher-credential students in the combined program must reach program completion before the master’s degree can be posted, unless a waiver has been approved by the CEIS Graduate Studies Coordinator and the Education Department Chair.
