# Mathematics Major (B.S.)(Combined B.S./M.A.T. with Teacher Certification in Mathematics (Preschool-Grade 12) and Teacher of Students with Disabilities)

The Dual Degree Dual Certification program is a 5-year program that leads to teacher certification in Mathematics (grades P-12), 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 Program website for the required undergraduate professional sequence of courses, overall course outline, and other important Program requirements, guidelines, and procedures. Students also are 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.

## Teacher Education Sequence

To be eligible for admission to the Teacher Education Program, a student must have a minimum 2.75 GPA in math major and collateral courses and have successfully completed 11 credits or more of math major courses. In addition, in order to remain in the Teacher Education Program students must maintain a 3.0 overall GPA and 2.75 GPA in the major.

## Program Requirements

##### Requirements for the graduate portion of this dual degree program can be found here.

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