Those who are majoring in mathematics may accomplish this by selecting the Single Subject Teaching Option. Others who have earned or are pursuing a baccalaureate in another discipline may qualify for the Single Subject credential in Mathematics by completing the waiver program described below. Students should consult advisers in the department and the Charter College of Education for regulations governing all teaching credential programs.

It is assumed that students entering this program have completed two courses in algebra and one in trigonometry.
