Mathematics Education: Elementary/Middle School Option B.S.
This professional degree program prepares students for teaching mathematics at the elementary and/or middle school level. The program is coordinated with the education department's teacher certification programs. For the elementary option, full certification requires the five-year program. Students may complete the degree requirements for middle school option with full teacher certification in either four or five years.
Students electing the four-year option leading to middle school certification must plan for one semester of student teaching (EDUC 694 Courses in Supervised Teaching) in their senior year; this requires careful planning with your program adviser to accommodate the scheduling of required MATH courses. Requirements for admission to student teaching include receiving credit for EDUC 500 and a minimum cumulative 2.8 GPA.
The five-year program for either option includes a year-long teaching internship in the fifth year. The internship requires admission into a UNH Department of Education graduate program that leads to certification. See Education, College of Liberal Arts.
In all courses used to satisfy the requirements for its major programs, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics requires that a student earn a grade of C- or better and have an overall grade-point average of at least 2.00 in these courses.
For teacher licensure a grade of B- or better is required in all Education courses.
