Through its affiliation with University of the Pacific, Stockton, the Bay Area Teacher Training Institute (BATTI) offers two-year combined Master’s and credential programs for Bay Area educators.  In our residency program leading to a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, UOP/BATTI students work full-time at independent, charter, and public schools while taking evening and weekend courses to attain their credential and Master’s degree. Close supervision from thoughtful, experienced mentors creates an atmosphere of reflection, collegiality, and support.

In our UOP/BATTI Educational Leadership program, experienced working professional educators gain a Master’s in Educational Leadership and can apply for their Administrative Services Credential.
