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).
Notes: 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.
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/Secondary from EWU should have the following:
- a sensitivity and ability to respond to the mathematical thinking of secondary students;
- a strong ability to reason mathematically and develop proofs with understanding;
- ability to critically read, analyze, evaluate, transform, and implement mathematics education literature;
- applications of pedagogical content knowledge for secondary mathematics in planning and teaching;
- habits of mind to continue improving teaching practices that support mathematics learning;
- the values, dispositions, and habits of mind of a community of mathematicians;
- understanding of foundational content of modern mathematics and its applications;
- understanding of mathematical learning progressions and connections within secondary mathematics.
