Secondary Education (Secondary Education Math) - Bachelor of Science in Education

General education and professional education requirements are similar for all degree programs in the College of Education. Students should meet with an advisor to plan appropriate general education courses for a secondary education major. The below programs are labeled as Concentrations in the catalog and on student transcripts, but are also recognized at "Teaching Fields" for the Teacher Education Program. Students should meet with the College of Education Educational Support and Resource Center for degree progress. 

Students must complete all University degree requirements, which include: General Education requirements, Viewing a Wider World requirements, and elective credits to total at least 120 credits with 48 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Developmental coursework will not count towards the degree requirements and/or elective credits, but may be needed in order to take the necessary English and Mathematics coursework.
