National University Teacher Credential Program
In each of the past 13 years, National University has prepared more teachers for credentialing than any other single institution of higher education in California.

Unprecedented growth in the K-12 student population, combined with teacher and administrator retirements, has created an in-demand job market for qualified teachers, school psychologists, counselors, and administrators. National University offers a broad range of academic opportunities that lead to advancement in these careers.

Learn more about the Credential Program and options for Student Teaching and University Internship and requirements by attending a Student Teaching Orientation with Dr. Patricia Dickenson.
