Teaching English at Secondary Level

According to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing of the State of California, successful completion of the English major will suffice in demonstrating English subject matter competency. English majors intending to pursue a teaching career in English at the secondary level must still enroll in a teacher credentialing program upon completion of a BA, but may waive the CSET exams that are designed to assess subject matter competency.
