SELECT-LA is an accelerated, one-year pathway to a preliminary ECSE credential. Candidates begin coursework during the summer semester and then complete two semesters (Fall and Spring) teaching and taking further coursework.
SELECT-LA candidates will include extensive fieldwork in classrooms, early learning centers, family resource centers and regional centers that serve disabled children.
SELECT-LA candidates will become highly-qualified teachers who are skilled in family-centered practices and inclusion strategies, and who will work in urban cities.
All prospective candidates must attend a SELECT-LA information session before applying to the program.
