Do you remember that middle school history teacher you loved? Or that counselor who sparked your desire to work in education?
Well, if you grew up in L.A., there's a good chance that at least one of those memorable educators was a Cal State L.A. alum, and they probably graduated from the Charter College of Education. Headquartered in King Hall, the Charter College has been turning out high-quality instructors, counselors and administrators for years. It was the nation's first and only charter college for education and it's a leader in reform, and a model for teacher education. Here you can earn your bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees.
Another thing to note: You can work toward your bachelor's degree and teaching credential at the same time.
