CA Education Major

Hey everyone! I am looking to become a teacher in CA after I go to college (currently a HS junior in AZ). I am looking at teaching either elementary school or middle/high school math. I have done my research about the credential requirements in CA, but I still have a couple of questions about the whole process.

Some universities offer an integrated program where students get their Bachelor's degree and preliminary teaching credential in 4 years. Other schools have a 5-year track where students get their Bachelor's degree and then their Master's and credential in the 5th year. What are the pros and cons of each path? Is it necessary to get a Master's degree?

All input is appreciated!
