Teacher Education Programs at Mills
The Mills Teacher Education Department prepares professionals to be reflective, collaborative, and visionary teacher-leaders who are committed to improving K-12 education, with a particular focus on urban and public schools. The department hosts a diverse array of programs offering undergraduate majors and minors in education, as well as accelerated pathways from undergraduate degree completion to the teaching credential.
Renowned for its commitment to social justice, equity, and to teachers developing a critical stance to their practice, the newly redesigned teaching credential program, Educators for Liberation, Justice, and Joy (ELJJ), offers multiple and single subject credentials in mathematics and science or the humanities (art, English, social science, or Spanish and French as world languages) for preservice and interns currently teaching in schools. With one additional year of study, graduates of the credential programs may complete an MA in education with an emphasis in teaching (MEET) by taking two additional courses, and multiple subject credential students may complete coursework toward an MA in early childhood education.
