The Department of Computer Science and Mathematics cooperates with the Department of Education in meeting its mission to prepare candidates for a Bachelors of Arts degree in Education with mathematics teaching specialization for grades 5-adult. This mathematics specialization prepares teacher candidates for teaching mathematics. Students receiving a B.A. in Math Education also satisfy the degree requirements for a B.S. in Mathematics. Students pursuing these degrees are advised in the Math department.
NOTE: MATH 1550, 1561, 2563, 2501, 2502, and 3503 are required for both degrees and should be completed early in the program.
Core Curriculum (30-33 Credit Hours)
For details on the required courses, refer to the Core Curriculum program. For students in this major, the following courses satisfy both core curriculum and major requirements:
Students must complete a minimum of 8 free credit hours of electives to complete the total degree requirements. Choosing higher-credit hour alternatives in the core curriculum and electives reduces the minimum number of free elective credit hours required to reach 120 semester hours.
