About the CSET

There is a profound shortage of science and math teachers in California and the nation. To address this need, CSUN is offering free Science and Math CSET preparation courses to prepare candidates to pass these assessments of subject mater competence so that they may earn California Science and/or Math Teaching Credentials.

The California Subject Examinations for Teachers® (CSET®) have been developed by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) for prospective teachers who choose to or are required to meet specific requirements for certification by taking examinations. Each test in the program is designed to measure a specific set of knowledge, skills, and/or abilities reflecting the subject area of the credential sought. The sets of subject matter requirements for all examinations of the CSET were defined in conjunction with committees of California educators and approved by the CTC. The California State Northridge Mat & Science Teacher Initiative (CSUN-MSTI) provides free workshops to help prepare individuals to pass the math and science CSET exams so that they may earn credentials.

*Eligibility for stipend is based upon availability of funding, with priority given to students who have attended all sessions and earned their math & science credential at CSUN. Consideration will be made for students from other universities who have completed their science or math methods courses (SED525S & SED 525M) at CSUN.
