The Mathematics Bachelor of Science (Teacher Licensure) follows the guidelines of the National Council of Teacher of Mathematics for undergraduate programs for teachers of mathematics. Students majoring in this degree should also check the Professional Education requirements found in Professional Education: Secondary.
Note: If the student’s high school mathematics courses and/or the Mathematics Placement Test indicate a lack of readiness for calculus, the student will be placed in one of the following precalculus sequences: MATH 1470; or MATH 1170 and MATH 1180; or MATH 1170 and MATH 1470. Students who need to take more than one course in preparation for calculus may not be able to complete this program without exceeding 120 credits.
