Supervision is completed while employed by one of the cooperating school districts.

Multiple Subject Internship
The multiple-subject program option is completed over 6 quarters (18 months) through 60 credits of university coursework while candidates are employed on an Intern Credential by one of the cooperating school districts. Multi-subject candidates may take their courses at the San Bernardino main campus, Palm Desert Campus, or at Victor Valley Community College.
