What is New Pathways To Teaching in New Jersey (NPTNJ)?

NPTNJ is a partnership between New Jersey City University and Ocean County College.

NPTNJ offers an alternate route teacher preparation program designed to provide candidates with the skills and strategies necessary to become excellent, successful teachers.

Candidates take NPTNJ coursework at OCC either on campus or as a hybrid program. The program provides a process for individuals who already hold a bachelor’s degree or higher to become licensed teachers without having to complete a traditional teacher training program. The NPTNJ program is regulated and approved by the NJ Department of Education (DOE).
