### Teacher Licensure

Through a partnership with the College of Education and Human Development and the Department of Teaching and Learning, students may seek secondary licensure in Mathematics. The following program of study must be completed:

I. Mathematics program of study

- The Essential Studies, Non-Mathematics, and Mathematics Core requirements as described above.
- The following courses to satisfy the breadth requirement:
*Theoretical Mathematics: Math 409 Geometry**Probability and Statistics*: MATH 321 Applied Statistical Methods*Teaching Content Requirements*: MATH 208 Discrete Mathematics, MATH 308 History of Mathematics

- The following sequence:

MATH 435 Theory of Numbers & MATH 441 Abstract Algebra

II. Admission to the Secondary Program, normally while taking T&L 250 Introduction to Education. (See College of Education and Human Development for admission and licensing requirements.)

III. The program in Secondary Education (see Teaching & Learning):

Mathematics majors seeking secondary licensure must have an advisor in both the Mathematics Department and the Department of Teaching and Learning.
