Mathematics - Secondary Licensure
For students interested in teaching at the high school level, we recommend they pursue our:
And then take the necessary course work from the department of teacher education (including student teaching) to obtain licensure.

This emphasis exceeds the necessary coursework to meet the "highly qualified" requirement as set forth by the State of Colorado.
It does not, however, meet the recommendations of the Mathematical Association of America for someone pursuing a career as a high school teacher (9-12), nor does it meet the requirements for secondary licensure in all states (i.e. a true B.A. in Mathematics).
