       More information needed:
The following guidance is from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing “Subject Matter Authorization Guideline Book.” Access this on the
CTC website at http://www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/CREDS/sup-subject-matter-auth.html.

Introductory English: *Grammar or Language Structure *Advanced composition          *Literature   *Speech   *Drama or Theatre

      An individual with a major in drama, speech, or literature will not be issued a subject matter authorization in Introductory English
       authorization based solely on the degree.
      Basic English courses required for a bachelor's degree, often numbered 1A and 1B, will not clear the grammar area. Course
       descriptions are usually needed to verify that a course covers grammar or language structure unless it is clearly mentioned in the
       course title. Key words or concepts for language structure are sentence structure and functions of the English verb system.
      One composition and one advanced composition course will meet the grammar or language structure and advanced composition
       areas. One advanced composition and either a creative writing or applied composition course may also be used to meet the grammar
       or language structure and composition areas.
      Course work in foreign language literature is acceptable.
      Speech courses may be found in the English or communications departments.
      All aspects of drama or theatre are acceptable including courses in costume design, lighting, sound, props, and makeup.


Additional guidance from CSUSM:
   Each course must be at least 3 semester units or 4 quarter units and must be completed with a grade of “C” or better (“credit,”
       “passing” are also acceptable).
   Upper and lower division courses are acceptable.
   Attach official course descriptions and/or syllabi if needed to explain any questionable courses.
   If you are missing some courses, seek out possible coursework for the required element, and then ask questions in the text box at the
       end.
