A National Science Foundation Noyce Grant awardee, the Mathematics, BA Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) major is designed for students interested in teaching mathematics in high school or middle school. The course work satisfies requirements for (1) a BA in Mathematics, (2) Single Subject Credential in mathematics (SSC), and (3) an Education Specialist Preliminary Teaching Credential: Mild/Moderate Support Needs (ESC). The Mathematics, Integrated Teacher Education Program, BA has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) as an integrated undergraduate teacher preparation program. Students who complete the 4-year BA Math degree will be recommended to the CCTC for a preliminary single subject credential to teach middle school and high school mathematics. Students who complete the ESC requirements for an additional school year after graduation (24 units) will be recommended to the CCTC for a preliminary education in mild to moderate services and earn a Master of Arts in Special Education.
Students in the integrated program must have successfully passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (or equivalent alternatives) and completed 80% of math coursework in order to satisfy subject matter competency and engage in solo teaching in middle school or high school math classrooms. Minimum grade point average (GPA) criteria is required to verify subject matter competency and entry to student teaching.
The subject matter preparation component of the integrated Math Integrated Teacher Education Program, offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, includes (1) a minimum of 30 semester units of core mathematics coursework that is directly related to subjects that are commonly taught in departmentalized mathematics classes in California public schools and (2) a minimum of 15 semester units of coursework that provides extended study (breadth and depth) of the subject. The degree requires 27 upper division units of mathematics.
The 33 required upper division units of credential courses need to be taken at SJSU.
