Department & Faculty Information  

Mathematics Preparation Programs


The Department of Mathematics offers two preparation programs for future mathematics teachers; the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics and the Subject Matter Program in Foundational-level Mathematics. Undergraduate students interested in teaching mathematics at the middle or high school level are strongly encouraged to complete the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics. Completion of the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics establishes subject matter competency in mathematics for future teachers to teach all mathematics at the K-12 level. Completion of the Subject Matter Program in Foundational-level Mathematics establishes subject matter competency in mathematics for future teachers to teach mathematics at the middle school level and for some mathematics courses at the high school level.

Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics


Completion of the Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics is certified by the Department of Mathematics. A student need not be a mathematics major to complete this program; however, students who complete the mathematics major with Option C (Mathematics Teaching) should find it relatively easy to meet the requirements of the program, as noted in the description of Option C requirements in the undergraduate Mathematics chapter. In addition to the required mathematics courses, a year of education courses and practice teaching is required before the California Secondary Teaching Credential in Mathematics can be granted. Seventy-one quarter units are required in the Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics. For additional information, contact:
