Blended Program: Single Subject Teaching Credential

Majors in the Bachelor of Arts degree complete a minimum of 128 units to graduate. The following majors have the option of choosing the blended teacher education track by fulfilling additional units within the undergraduate degree in fulfillment of the Single Subject California Teaching Credential.

For the blended program, the following 400 level credential courses are strategically added to the undergraduate degree course plan. These courses represent the required courses for the California SB2042 Single Subject Teaching Credential. Students desiring to enroll in the blended teacher education track would need to make application to the Teacher Education program before entry in the 3rd credential course, meeting all program, university and state requirements for classroom observations and tests required prior to student teaching. Students would be interviewed by a faculty committee prior to being placed in student teaching. Candidates remain Kinesiology majors, and are co-advised by both departments throughout their undergraduate program.

Candidates may also apply to the School of Education Graduate Program to fulfill the remaining requirements toward the California Teaching Credential(s). Any 400-level courses cross listed with the 600 level credential courses cannot be repeated between the undergraduate and graduate programs. At the point that the requirements for the undergraduate degree are fulfilled, the candidate would apply to the Graduate School of education and complete the remaining courses required for the credential post-baccalaureate.

The following courses may be used for the credentialing purposes in the State of California. When taken prior to the posting of a baccalaureate degree, unit values may not be applied toward master’s degree courses. Other appropriate master’s degree-level courses must be substituted for unit values.
