Mathematics Major (B.S.)(Combined B.S./M.A.T. with Teacher Certification in Grades K-6 and Teacher of Students with Disabilities)

The Dual Degree Dual Certification Program is a 5-year Program that leads to teacher certification in elementary education (K-6) teacher certification in Teacher of Students with Disabilities, a baccalaureate degree and a master's degree. Interested students must apply to and be admitted to the Teacher Education Program as an undergraduate. Students must successfully complete the undergraduate portion of the program in order to be admitted to the Graduate School and complete the one year master's portion of the program.

Please visit the Teacher Education website for the required undergraduate professional sequence of courses, overall course outline, and other important Program requirements, guidelines and procedures. Students are also strongly advised to review the Teacher Education Program Handbook.

A minimum of 120 credits of coursework is required for the baccalaureate degree with a minimum 3.0 overall GPA; however more than 120 credits may be required depending upon the major field of study.  Major GPA requirements differ depending on field of study. Consult the Teacher Education Program Handbook for more information.

Program Requirements

Students must complete 42 credits of General Education requirements and 3-9 credits of World Languages and Cultures Requirements.
