Mathematics/Middle Level Endorsement Major, Bachelor of Arts in Education (BAE)
Completion of this major and the General Degree Completion Requirements for Education, Secondary (43 credits) satisfies the state requirements for a state mathematics teaching endorsement (middle level, grade levels 4–9.)
Notes: all candidates for certification must pass the NES subject matter test to receive an endorsement for certification purposes.
Prerequisite Grade Policy: students must have earned a grade ≥C or better in any course that is to be used to satisfy a prerequisite requirement for a subsequent mathematics course offered by the Eastern Washington University Department of Mathematics.
Grade Requirements: students must receive a grade ≥C in each course used to satisfy the requirements of an undergraduate major or minor in mathematics.

University Competencies and Proficiencies
- Minimum Credits—180 cumulative credit hours
- 60 upper-division credits (300 level or above)
- 45 credits in residence (attendance) at Eastern, with at least 15 upper-division credits in major in residence at Eastern
- Minimum Cumulative GPA ≥2.0
All admitted students must officially Declare a Major by the time they reach 90 credits (junior standing).
Application for Graduation (use EagleNET) must be made at least two terms in advance of the term you expect to graduate (undergraduate and post-baccalaureate).
Use the Catalog Archives to determine two important catalog years.
SOAR calculates based on these two catalog years.
- The catalog in effect at the student's first term of current matriculation is used to determine BACR (Breadth Area Credit Requirements) and UGR (Undergraduate Graduation Requirements).
- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
Students who successfully earn a BAE in Mathematics/Middle Level Endorsement from EWU should be able to do the following:
- demonstrate and apply in the classroom a profound understanding of fundamental mathematics;
- demonstrate and apply in the classroom a deep understanding of how students learn mathematics and of the pedagogical knowledge specific to mathematics teaching and learning;
- exhibit a productive disposition: value learning, value and respect student thinking, exhibit curiosity about students and mathematics, demonstrate perseverance, model effective learning, understand and value the role of discourse in promoting the learning of math.
