Mathematics Major (B.S.)(Combined B.S./M.A.T. with Teacher Certification in Mathematics (Preschool-Grade 12) and Teacher of Students with Disabilities)

The Dual Degree Dual Certification program is a 5-year program that leads to teacher certification in Mathematics (grades P-12), teacher certification in Teacher of Students with Disabilities, a baccalaureate degree and a master’s degree. Interested students must apply to and be admitted to the Teacher Education Program as an undergraduate. Students must successfully complete the undergraduate portion of the program in order to be admitted to the Graduate School and complete the one-year master’s portion of the program.
