Many of the questions candidates have about the Single Subject Program are answered in the Program Handbook. If candidates do not find what they need, they should consult an advisor. On admission candidates are assigned a faculty advisor. All advisors are familiar with the Single Subject Program, the School of Education, the credentialing process, and the professional education community. Candidates are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor at least once every semester. Candidates are encouraged to consult with their faculty advisor whenever they have questions or comments about the program, academic progress, future job prospects, personal concerns, or any other matter.
In addition, faculty specialists in each subject matter area serve as subject area advisors to Single Subject students. If candidates have not satisfied subject matter preparation requirements by the time they enter the Single Subject Program, they must contact the respective subject area advisor as soon as possible to plan how to complete this crucial aspect of preparation for teaching.
