This physical education certification program combines the curricula of the credential and master’s degree to deliver a unique comprehensive educational package. Upon completion, the credential candidate will have earned both a 2042 Preliminary Single Subject Teaching Credential and a Master of Arts in Physical Education. The master’s degree is earned after the candidate has completed all requirements for the preliminary credential program coursework. The non-intern track is designed for nonteaching candidates with a bachelor’s degree in physical education, kinesiology, or exercise science who are seeking a single subject teaching credential and a graduate physical education degree concurrently. The Intern track is designed for candidates already teaching in the field.
