2022 - 2023 Undergraduate Catalog [FINAL EDITION]

Mathematics: Secondary Education Certification, BS

Students majoring in mathematics can obtain secondary certification in mathematics by completing the secondary education track. Students must also follow the instructions and requirements in the Center for Education section. Students may seek certification in more than one field; however, this usually requires more than eight semesters. Students who wish to become certified in more than one area should work closely with their faculty advisor when planning course schedules.

Curriculum Sequence

Changes may occur via the Pennsylvania Department of Education and will be communicated to students through their advisors. Education students must receive a grade of B (3.0) or better in the majority of education classes. Students must have a 2.9 overall GPA and pass PAPA, CORE, or have SAT or ACT scores that are high enough to offer exemption from these assessments to be admitted to teacher candidacy. Please see the Office of Certification for more information on testing. Students must have current criminal record checks, FBI clearances, and child abuse clearances.
