IV.Acceptance into the Teacher Education Program and the Student Teaching
Teacher Education Program: Students pursuing academic programs that lead to teacher licensure must be accepted into the teacher education program by the end of their sophomore year.
Student Teaching: All preservice teachers must obtain admission to the student teaching.
To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Mathematics for Secondary Education, a student must pass the mathematics senior exit exam and earn a grade of "C" or better in all of the courses listed under "Broadfield Major Program Requirements," "Professional Education Requirements," and "Other Program Requirements." A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in mathematics for secondary education will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are prerequisite.
- All secondary education students must consult both with the Department of Education: Health, Physical, and Teacher and the Department of Mathematics, Engineering, and Computer Science.
- All Mathematics for Secondary Education students must meet the following requirements: 1) earn a grade of "C" or better in all Professional Education Requirements; 2) earn a minimum of 2.5 cumulative grade point average
- Earn a minimum 2.65 grade point average in Major Program Requirements, Other Program Requirements, and Professional Education Requirements.
