BS in Adolescent Mathematics Education Program (7-12)

The BS program in Mathematics with a concentration in Mathematics Education offers students a rigorous course of instruction both in Mathematics content and in teaching Mathematics in grades 7-12, combining the requirements of a BS in mathematics and pedagogical course work and practical experience that lead to initial certification to teach in New York State.

To be admitted in the program, undergraduate students must be currently enrolled in the BS mathematics program at CCNY and must be in the process of completing the requirements of the mathematics major as defined by the Mathematics Department. Once students have declared a Mathematics major and completed a minimum of 12 credits within this major (starting with Calculus), with a minimum GPA of 3.00, and have passed the S.E.A.T examination, they can begin the undergraduate process for the Mathematics Education Program.
