Teaching Licensure at CSU: A Q&A

Interested in a career in teaching?

At CSU, we offer teacher licensure in a variety of concentration areas, ranging from engineering to art. Simply select an approved major in the content area you’re interested in, and education coursework will be built into that degree program. This allows you to combine your passion for teaching with your academic interest.

14 majors to choose from

Your first step is to select from one of our 14 approved majors and corresponding concentration. During your second year at CSU, you will apply to the teacher preparation program through a non-competitive admission process.
