Teacher and Educator Preparation


The CSU prepares more of California's teachers than all other institutions combined—and nearly 8 percent of the nation's teachers.


Every day, the CSU’s expert faculty and their partners give 10,000 future teachers the skills they need to support every student.


Over the past decade, the CSU has nearly doubled the number of math and science teachers it prepares—to 1,500 per year.​​
