Junior-Year Integrated (JYI) English Subject Matter Credential Program
English BA and Preliminary Single Subject Credential in English
JYI-English begins in the junior year for students who apply and have been accepted to the program. This Program integrates undergraduate subject matter knowledge with professional credential preparation content and experiences, and leads to both the BA in English and the Single Subject Preliminary Credential in English. For admission, students must be juniors who have completed the lower division general education requirements, including Title V parts 1 and 2, and the lower division core of the English Subject Matter Option major. Applications to both the University and to the Credential Program are necessary for community college transfers; Undergraduate CSUN students apply to the Credential Program. Students will be responsible for successfully completing the English Subject Matter Culminating Interview, the CSUN Upper Division Writing Proficiency Exam (UDWPE), and the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST).
Paralleling the FYI-English Program, the JYI-English Option requires students to complete the Extended Study requirement in Literature. Students considering the JYI-English Program should seek advisement as soon as possible for guidance in meeting admission and program requirements.
