Candidates for B.S.Ed. in Mathematics must satisfy the requirements in two of the groups below with a grade of C- or better.

If candidates choose group 2, then they cannot apply either the two courses listed in that group towards the additional 4000 level mathematics courses (beyond the core requirements) that must be completed for each of these degrees.

Students seeking a double degree, either within this department or with another department, do not have to fulfill the related area requirements.
