Certificate in Economics Education
Units required for Certificate: 15
The Economics Education Certificate Program is designed to give participants a solid foundation in economics that will enable them to teach the subject in primary and secondary schools. The Certificate Program is intended for
- future or practicing teachers who desire credential authorization to teach the one-semester economics course required of all California public high school students; and
- future or practicing teachers who wish to infuse economics into other K-12 curricula.
Students majoring in Liberal Studies or Social Science or completing a teacher credential program are especially encouraged to participate.
Note: Participants who are not enrolled in Sacramento State may take these courses through the College of Continuing Education.
