Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Education

This major is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career in teaching mathematics at the secondary (i.e., middle or high school) level. With the help of her/his advisor, the student may design a schedule carefully so that s/he can complete the degree and 2042 California Preliminary Single Subject (Secondary) Teaching Credential during her/his four years at LMU.

Included in the program, students complete University and College core requirements. Additionally, students complete eight upper division math core. The required upper division math courses are: MATH 321 , MATH 331 , MATH 357 , MATH 360 , MATH 490 , MATH 493  or MATH 497 , MATH 550 , and one additional 3 semester hour upper division MATH elective (excluding MATH 301  or MATH 302 ) chosen in consultation with her/his advisor.

In addition, the Bachelor of Arts requires students to complete EDES 488  and two three semester EDxx courses chosen from the list of requirements for the preliminary single subject secondary credential program. Those doing both the Bachelor of Arts and the credential will have to complete the other requirements for the credential program.
