High-Need Subject Areas

Virtual Advisor

The Virtual Advisor can answer your questions about high-need subject areas:


California employs over 300,000 teachers to educate its 6.3 million students. While all the subjects taught in the public schools are important, there is a greater shortage of teachers in particular subjects. Obtaining a teaching credential in one of these fields would help reduce the shortage and may increase your chances of employment.

Additional Subjects

While other subject areas may not be experiencing teacher shortages right now, they are important academic core subjects that are required for graduation from high school.
