Degree in MathematicsSecondary Education
B.A. Effective Fall 1997
This major offers an excellent preparation for teaching Mathematics in secondary schools. Students interested in earning a California teaching credential from UCSD should contact Education Studies (EDS [formerly TEP] for information regarding prerequisites and requirements. Please note that completion of the major degree in MathematicsSeconday Education does not fulfill the Foundations (first year) of the M.Ed./Credential Program since additional EDS courses are required. On the other hand, completion of the Mathematics Education Minor does allow you to apply into the second year of the M.Ed./Single Subject Credential Program. It is recommended you contact EDS as early as possible.
All courses used to satisfy major requirements must be taken for a letter grade, and must be completed with a C or better.
