The CSUEB Foundational Mathematics Single Subject Matter Certificate Program includes a variety of courses intended to prepare students for a career as a middle school mathematics teacher. CSUEB’s Foundational Mathematics Single Subject Matter program yields a State Board of Education approved certification. This certification allows a student to waive taking the two required math California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSETs). If a student subsequently wishes to complete a California Secondary Teaching Credential in Foundational Mathematics, in addition to the required mathematics courses, a year of education courses and practice teaching is required.
Thirty three (33) semester units are required in the Foundational Mathematics Single Subject Certificate Program.
