Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges, Third Edition.
Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, Sacramento.
This document lists minimum qualifications for California community college faculty and administrative positions. The list guides these education professionals in determining the academic requirements in their field, for both disciplines requiring a master's degree and disciplines in which a master's degree is not generally expected or available. According to Title 5 regulations, the following rules exist for all disciplines regardless of the required qualifications: (1) degrees and credits generally must be from accredited institutions; (2) an occupational license or certificate is required in certain instances; and (3) a district may hire a person who possesses qualifications different from, but equivalent to, those listed on the disciplines list, according to criteria and procedures agreed upon by the governing board and the academic senate. Seventy-two disciplines requiring a master's degree are listed alphabetically, from accounting to women's studies, with specific qualifications noted for each. Disciplines in which the master's degree is not generally expected or available require a minimum qualification of any bachelor's degree and two years of experience, or any associate degree and six years of experience. More than 100 of these disciplines are listed alphabetically, ranging from addiction paraprofessional training to welding. Both of these lists, used to implement the minimum qualifications for credit instructors and counselors, were prepared and reviewed primarily by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges.
