College Requirements:
College Breadth Requirements:
The College Breadth requirements are in addition to the University Breadth requirement. Up to three credits from each of the University Breadth Requirement categories may be used to simultaneously satisfy these College of Arts and Sciences Breadth Requirements. Minimum grade C required for courses used to satisfy College Breadth.
*If the grade earned is sufficient, a course may be applied toward more than one requirement (e.g., breadth and major requirements), but the credits are counted only once toward the total credits for graduation. If all but one course in a group has been taken in one department or program, a course crosslisted with that program will not satisfy the distribution requirement.
Foreign Language:
 Completion of the intermediatelevel course (107,112, or 202) in an ancient or modern language with minimum grades of D.
 The number of credits (012) needed and initial placement will depend on the number of years of high school study of foreign language.
 Students with four or more years of high school work in a single foreign language, or who have gained proficiency in a foreign language by other means, may attempt to fulfill the requirement in that language by taking an exemption examination through the Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department.
Mathematics:
The math requirement must be completed by the time a student has earned 60 credits. Students who transfer into the College of Arts and Sciences with 45 credits or more must complete this requirement within two semesters.
Complete one of the following four options (minimum grade D):
Option Two:
One of the following:
Option Four:
 Successful performance on a proficiency test in mathematics administered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences (0 credits awarded).
Second Writing Requirement:
A Second Writing Requirement approved by the College of Arts and Sciences. This course must be taken after completion of 60 credit hours, completed with a minimum grade of C, and the section enrolled must be designated as satisfying the requirement in the academic term completed.
Major Requirements:
Minimum grade of C required for major courses and Professional Studies courses. Students lacking preparation for MATH 242 should begin with MATH 241 .
Modeling Elective:
One of the following:
 MATH 518  Mathematical Models and Applications
 MATH 512  Contemporary Applications of Mathematics
Computer Science:
One of the following:
Note:
To be eligible to student teach, Mathematics Education students must have a GPA of 2.5 in their mathematics major and an overall GPA of 2.5. They must also pass a teacher competency test as established by the University Council on Teacher Education. Remaining in the program is subject to periodic review of satisfactory progress and, to be admitted to EDUC 400  Student Teaching (3 to 12cr.) , students must have completed all the mathematics courses required in the secondary mathematics education program. Students should consult the teacher education program coordinator to obtain the student teaching application and other information concerning student teaching policies.
