Abstract. We consider a class of Schroedinger operators  referred to as Schroedinger operators over circle maps  that generalize onefrequency quasiperiodic Schroedinger operators, with a base dynamics given by an orientationpreserving homeomorphism of a circle $T^1=R/Z$, instead of a circle rotation. In particular, we consider Schroedinger operators over circle diffeomorphisms with a single singular point where the derivative has a jump discontinuity (circle maps with a break) or vanishes (critical circle maps). We show that in a twoparameter region  determined by the geometry of dynamical partitions and $lpha$  the spectrum of Schroedinger operators over every sufficiently smooth such map, is purely singular continuous, for every $lpha$H\"oldercontinuous potential $V$. As a corollary, we obtain that for every sufficiently smooth such map, with an invariant measure $\mu$ and with rotation number in a set $S$ depending on the class of the considered maps, and $\mu$almost all $x\in\Tt^1$, the corresponding Schroedinger operator has a purely continuous spectrum, for every H\"oldercontinuous potential $V$. For circle maps with a break, this set includes some Diophantine numbers with a Diophantine exponent $\delta$, for any $\delta>1$.
