The BA in Studio Practice/Preparation for Teaching, offered by the Department of Art and Art History , is designed for students interested in teaching art in high school or middle school and has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) as meeting the undergraduate subject matter preparation for a single subject credential program to be completed after the BA. The Preparation for Teaching degree provides a broad foundation in contemporary art practice and permits some specialization in a favorite art medium as well as specialized courses in teaching art education for young people. (Note that completing this major does not guarantee admission to a credential program; see www.sjsu.edu/education for more information.) This is an excellent time to prepare for a teaching career in California.
