(MA32) Mathematics-Secondary Education B.A.
B.A. effective Fall 1997.
Faculty advisor: Patrick Fitzsimmons
This major is partial preparation for teaching mathematics at the secondary school level. (To learn about various paths for earning a California teaching credential and teaching in California high schools, contact the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, or the UC San Diego Department of Education Studies.) Students take introductory courses in number theory, history of mathematics, mathematical computing, statistics/probability, geometry, abstract algebra, and real analysis. Although a student in this major COULD attempt to embark on a career path outside of lower level academia, that might be difficult to successfully accomplish given the name of the major and associated perceptions.
