This option is for students preparing to teach mathematics at the secondary school level
. Thirty units of post-baccalaureate coursework are also required for the Clear Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics
. The requirements are as follows:
- Lower Division: MATH 122 , 123 , 224 , 233 , 247 ; MTED 301 or CECS 174 ; ENGL 317 (Technical Writing) or 300 or 101; and one of the following sequences: PHYS 151 and 152; or PHIL 170 and 270; or eight units of a foreign language.
- Upper Division: MATH 310 , 341 , 355 , 361A or 364A , 380 , 410 , 444 ; STAT 381 , MTED 411 ; 3 additional upper-division MATH units excluding MATH 370A , 370B ; and EDSS 300M .
- A total of 124 units including 40 upper division units.
- Fulfill General Education requirements. Note that you may use MATH 122 or 123 to satisfy General Education requirement B.2.
- Attain at least a 2.0 GPA in all courses taken, all courses taken at CSULB, all courses in the major, and all upper division courses in the major taken at CSULB. (But be aware that higher GPA standards apply for admission to the credential program.)
- Pass the Writing Proficiency Examination. (You must attempt this exam by the end of the semester during which you earn 75 or more units and before filing for a Grad Check. It may be retaken.)
- Have degree objective/major code MATHBS03. (If you wish to change your code, you must file a “Change of Degree Objective” form at the Mathematics and Statistics Department Office, FO3-120.)
- File a “Program Planner”, which has been signed by your Mathematics advisor, at the Mathematics and Statistics Department Office. This must be done before filing for a Grad Check.
- File for a Grad Check. This should be done by the preceding October 1 if graduating at the end of the Spring semester or Summer session, and by the preceding March 1 if graduating at the end of the Fall semester.
No upper division course used to satisfy major requirements, except English 317 or 300 and EDSS 300M , and no course in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics may be taken CR/NC.
