Secondary Education

A major or minor in mathematics is an important part of many degrees. For example, students interested in Secondary Math Education may pursue a minor or a major in mathematics. Computer Science majors wishing to apply for admission and financial support to some of the most competitive graduate programs in computer science are strongly encouraged to obtain at least a minor, and preferably a major, in mathematics (pure or applied). Students majoring in science, business, or pre-law can greatly benefit from a minor or major in Mathematics. The requirements for math majors and minors are listed below. (See the Undergraduate Catalog for more details.)

Mandatory Outcomes Assessment:
A general graduation requirement of the College of Arts and Sciences is participation in Outcomes Assessment. For majors in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, this consists of participation in the Senior Colloquium and Senior Exit Survey in the spring of the senior year, and possibly submission of a Graduation Portfolio, depending on the year in which the major begins. Click here for more information on the Mandatory Outcomes Assessment.

Candidates for either the B.A. or B.S. degree in the College of Arts and Sciences may complete requirements for a minor in education leading to teacher certification in the state of Ohio. Application should be made in the Office of the Assistant Dean for Student Personnel, 306 White Hall. All mathematics requirements for the B.A. or B.S. and the Education Requirements listed under the Bachelor of Science in Education degree must be satisfied. A course may be used to satisfy a requirement in both programs but then extra electives are required.
