Educators draw on the IB’s highly acclaimed, research-based curriculum to
prepare students for global leadership roles.
IB World Schools often recruit teachers who have prior IB teaching
experience, leaving those without IB teaching experience fewer
employment opportunities in IB schools. To empower educators to
become part of the growing network of IB educators, the IB partners with
universities and institutions to offer the IB certificate in teaching and
learning and the advanced certificate in teaching and learning research.
The IB educator certificates are professional certificates that complement
your academic qualifications and signal to school heads that you are
capable of teaching in an IB World School.

Fully Online Global Teacher Studies and Preparation: IB Primary and Middle Years Programs
The CSUSM School of Education, in collaboration with Extended Learning, is proud to offer the Fully Online Global
Teacher Studies and Preparation: International Baccalaureate Primary and Middle Years Programme.
In response to the overarching need to bring San Diego students an international perspective and deeper
understanding of people and their cultures to the classroom, CSUSM now offers courses of study recognized by
the International Baccalaureate. These courses develop teachers’ understanding of the principles and practices
associated with the IB Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme.
Candidates who successfully complete one of these courses of study are eligible to apply and earn the IB certificate
in teaching and learning. The program prepares San Diego area teachers (K-10) to serve in schools that implement
the IB curriculum.

Unique attributes of course
We believe that teachers studying the IB philosophy and framework need time to bring these strategies and lesson
ideas into the classroom. For that reason, the CSUSM IB Teacher Certificate is designed to combine theory with
practice as each class has two units of field study to complete in the candidate’s school or a cooperating school in
their local geographical area.
Our program faculty are IB K-12 teachers and IB program coordinators. With their knowledge and the convenience
of the online program, the CSUSM program can meet the needs of all aspiring IB teachers.

that “Agriculture is the foundation of a nation.” Since then, the University has made steady progress along with
