Mathematics - Mathematics for Secondary Education


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The Mathematics for Secondary Education option gives high-quality academic preparation to students who wish to become Colorado licensed grades 7-12 math teachers. This option is extremely demanding and requires careful planning and advising. Students choosing this option should consult a Math Department advisor as early as possible in their careers, and should read the Teacher Education Licensure Program  section of this catalog, for the steps and requirements for applying to the Teacher Education Licensure Program and requirements for completing the program. Students should be advised that the minimum hour requirement shown here to complete this option assumes that the student is ready to begin with Math 221 and Comp 150 in their Freshman year. An incoming placement into courses that are prerequisites for either of these courses will likely result in completing the program in more than four years.
