New Pathways to Teaching

New Pathways to Teaching in New Jersey (NPTNJ) provides an opportunity for people to become teachers who have a BS, BA, or higher degree and who did not complete a traditional teacher preparation program. The program is a collaborative effort between participating New Jersey Community Colleges and New Jersey City University (NJCU). This unique partnership provides students the opportunity to earn up to 15 graduate credits toward numerous NJCU graduate degrees in education as well as transfer of up to 15 graduate credits to other colleges and universities. In September of 2017, all alternate route programs in New Jersey were expanded to two year, 400 hour programs.
