Master of Arts in Education: Learning and Technology and Single Subject Teaching Credential
Azusa Pacific University’s Master of Arts in Education: Learning and Technology and Single Subject Teaching Credential program prepares candidates to earn a Master of Arts in Education: Learning and Technology degree along with an embedded California Single Subject Preliminary Teaching Credential. This program includes comprehensive foundation courses emphasizing teaching and educational methods, as well as specialization courses providing content required for the single subject credential. Practical classroom and fieldwork experiences provide application to theory, preparing candidates to teach in diverse settings. Advanced coursework in the emphasis area of learning and technology provides candidates with the knowledge to effectively design and infuse technology-embedded curriculum into 7-12 grade teaching and learning environments. The mode of delivery includes face-to-face instruction, campus-based classes, distance learning, blended and online courses, and clinical experiences.
The Master of Arts in Education: Learning and Technology is approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), which is transitioning to the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
Upon completion, the candidate will have earned both a Preliminary Single Subject Teaching Credential and a Master of Arts in Education: Learning and Technology degree.
