The 2042 Single-Subject Teaching Credential, Track B Program prepares teachers for positions at the middle and high school levels (7–12), and K–12 specialists in art, music, and physical education.
The Track B option is for teacher candidates who are employed teaching full time in a public K–12, or WASC-approved K–12 private school in a setting and assignment approved as appropriate for that credential by the credential advisor. Track B candidates must have completed their subject-matter requirements.
APU also offers a 2042 Single-Subject Teaching Credential/Master of Arts in Education: Teaching (Track A) for the candidate who is not teaching full time and who lacks subject-matter competence. This track is also appropriate for adults making career changes, as well as for those who are teaching without fulfilling subject-matter competence.
Tailored for those who are currently teaching full time in a 6–12 school as well as single-subject specialists in art, music, and physical education (Pre-K–12), the Single-Subject Credential, Track B Program offers an efficient path toward professional development. Teacher candidates may petition for transition into this internship program upon completion of all requirements and the offer of full-time employment. Offered in conjunction with the Master of Arts in Education, this program, geared for the working adult learner, produces some of the country's finest educators.
- Flexible program schedules allow students to take classes just one night a week while earning their credential and/or degree.
- Expert faculty offer quality instruction grounded in a Christian worldview, creating a relevant program that enables students to make a difference in their classrooms.
- Small class sizes create a rich learning community as students progress through the program with a cohort of peers.
