California Teaching Credentials
In an unequal world, education can be a great equalizer, and with a teaching credential, you can help make the world a better place for your students. Every school is unique, with its own regulations and standards, but your credential will open doors to new opportunities and prepare you to teach any student in any school.
Arizona Teaching Certificate
In this fully online program, you’ll teach full time while enrolled in a state-board-approved educator preparation program, preparing you to apply for state certification. You'll gain valuable teaching experience, hone your knowledge as an educator, and earn the education you need to become a qualified teacher in the state of Arizona.
As a school counselor, the difference you make in students’ lives may not show up right away, but the difference you make can last a lifetime. Learn to provide counseling support for students who need to overcome personal and academic challenges. Courses such as adolescent behavior, methodology, evaluation, and counseling prepare you to give every student a chance to prosper.
An EdD in educational psychology prepares you to work directly with students as a school psychologist, or help to design and implement systemic improvements to the learning experience. You can apply these skills in teaching or research at the university level, with coursework in leadership, consultation, global education, research design, program development, social justice, and more.
Designed with opportunities to engage in field experiences, collaborative professional learning, and a coaching-based, theory-to-practice approach, our ASC includes research-based practices to align with the requirements of the California Administrator Performance Assessment (CalAPA). Up to 12 units may be applied to the EdD in educational leadership and management.
Educational Leadership and Management
Become a leader in education with a doctorate of education in educational leadership and management degree. Learn to use educational theory and principles for strategic planning, directing finances, addressing compliance issues, and managing evolving personnel processes. The EdD offers specializations in social justice studies and K-12/charter school studies.
With a Certificate in California Teachers of English Learners (CTEL), Leading to CLAD Certificate or a Bilingual Authorization, you’ll prepare to remove the barriers that exist between people of different cultures and speakers of various languages using technological advances and exploring cross-cultural communication differences. Through these programs, you can build bridges of communication and understanding to make a lasting difference.
In my experience with Alliant it was very clear from the start that there was a commitment to education being the great equalizer—and so I feel like I got tools through my learning that are allowing me to become a better teacher and be able to reach out to everyone in my classrooms.

On Campus and Online Teaching Degrees At Alliant
Whether you want to teach young children or lead a classroom at a four-year college, we make it easy for you to find the certification program that's right for you.
Starting from early childhood, kids are greatly influenced by the teachers they interact with on a daily basis. Because that interaction is so important, we ensure our teacher preparation program helps future educators learn how to interact with students, prepare lesson plans, and structure courses.
