Mathematics/Secondary Major, Bachelor of Arts in Education (BAE)
Completion of this major and the General Degree Completion Requirements for Education, Secondary, satisfies the state requirements for a state mathematics teaching endorsement (secondary, grade levels 5–12).
- computer literacy proficiency is required (it can be demonstrated by CPLA 100 and CPLA 101 test, by CPLA 100 and CPLA 101 course credits or by CPLA 120 course credits);
- the above major takes more than 12 quarters at 15–16 credits a quarter;
- effective 09.01.14 all candidates for certification must pass the NES subject matter test to receive an endorsement for certification purposes.
Grade Requirements: students must receive a grade ≥C in each course used to satisfy the requirements of an undergraduate major or minor in mathematics.
