### Mathematics and Statistics Department

### BA - Mathematics, Preparation for Teaching (Integrated)

This integrated major is designed for students interested in teaching mathematics in high school or middle school. The following course work satisfies San José State University's requirements for (1) a BA in Mathematics, (2) a single subject teaching credential in mathematics (SSC), and (3) an education specialist instruction credential in mild to moderate disabilities (ESC). The integrated BA Mathematics Preparation for Teaching has also been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) as an integrated undergraduate teacher preparation program. Students who complete the 4-year BA Math degree will be recommended to the CCTC for a preliminary single subject credential to teach middle school and high school mathematics. Students who complete the ESC requirements for an additional semester after graduation will be recommended to the CCTC for a preliminary education specialist credential to teach math to students with special needs.

Students in the integrated program must have successfully passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (or equivalent alternatives) and completed 80% of math coursework in order to satisfy subject matter competency and engage in solo teaching in middle school or high school math classrooms. Minimum grade point average (GPA) criteria is required to verify subject matter competency and entry to student teaching.

The subject matter preparation component of the integrated BA Math Preparation for Teaching Program includes (1) a minimum of 30 semester units of core mathematics coursework that is directly related to subjects that are commonly taught in departmentalized mathematics classes in California public schools and (2) a minimum of 15 semester units of coursework that provides extended study (breadth and depth) of the subject. 30 upper division units of mathematics are required for this degree. If upper division requirements are satisfied using transferred lower division courses, then additional upper division math courses will need to be taken to obtain the required number of upper division units.

33 upper division units of credential courses are also required for this degree and need to be taken at SJSU.

*University Graduation Requirements*

Students must complete all residency, curriculum, unit, and GPA requirements as outlined in the Graduation Requirements section of the Policies and Procedures.

*4-Year Program Roadmap*

Students may find a roadmap for this program here. Roadmaps should be used in consultation with the catalog and your advisor to identify additional requirements for completing the major (for example, course grade minimums). Associate Transfer Degrees (ADT) pathway roadmaps can be found here.

*Major-Specific Graduation Requirements*

All courses in the Preparation and Required in the Major must be completed with a grade of "C- or better", and the following Preparation for the Major course with a grade of "C or better": MATH 100W.

All credential courses in the Preparation and Required in the Major must be completed with a grade of "B" or better.
