Track within major that corresponds to the secondary education major with concentration in mathematics

Teacher certification track

This track is preparation for teaching mathematics in high school. The major requirements are identical to those of the mathematics option of the Secondary Education major. Students who complete the requirements for the SCED program with the mathematics option automatically complete all requirements for a second degree in mathematics. Similarly, if you choose the mathematics teacher certification track as your first major, a second major in SCED may be available to you. You should consult with an advisor in SCED.

In the teacher certification track, you can earn either a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree or a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree. The Bachelor of Science places more emphasis on the natural and mathematical sciences, while the Bachelor of Arts places more emphasis on arts and humanities. The requirements for each degree are a little different.
