CSUN offers specialized training for science teachers:

California State University Northridge has one of the largest science education credentialing programs in the state of California. As a result of our size, we are able to offer specialized instruction in the teaching of science, rather than just the generalized teaching methods taught at many institutions. Students enroll in specialized science education courses such as: Methods of Teaching Science, Methods of Teaching Science Lab, Supervised Field Experience in Teaching Science, and Student Teaching in Science. In addition, science credential teachers may substitute Computers in Science Teaching, or Website Development for Science Teachers in lieu of the Computers in Education requirement. All professors hold doctoral degrees and have taught science in secondary schools. All field supervisors have had numerous years of experience as secondary school science teachers.

Careers in Science Education

There is a strong demand for science teachers in the state of California and throughout the nation. Our records show that during the past 20 years, more than 99% of those completing the credential programs in science have found jobs as science teachers. The demand for science teachers should remain strong despite economic recessions and fiscal cutbacks.
