Additional Information and Guidelines


Note 1: Students who take ENGL 10800 instead of ENGL 10400 must complete General Education Writing requirements with a Gen Ed approved writing intensive course.

Note 2: No mathematics courses below MA 16300 are allowed for credit ( but do count toward GPA).

Note 3: Approved List of Mathematics Major Electives: One(1) course must be selected from an Approved list of 3000 level or above mathematics and statistics courses.  Currently the Approved List of Mathematics Majors Electives for Secondary Teaching Concentration consists of: MA 37800-Computational Mathematics II; MA 44600-Introduction to Real Analysis; MA 47200-Introduction to Applied Mathematics; STAT 40001-Statistical Computing; STAT 43000-Applied Statistics, or, with departmental approval a 5000 level course. For a Mathematics Major in this concentration who wants a Statistics minor, three(3) courses from the list must be selected with STAT 4001 and STAT 43000 as two of them.

Note 4: The best time to take the Content test is prior to Gate 3(EDCI 34400, EDCI 32300, EDCI 30900).  During EDCI 35500 the roster will be used to identify students.

The best time for the Pedagogy test is during EDCI 34400.  This roster will be used to identify students

A financial incentive to assist in paying for the first test attempt is being implemented.  If test not passed, there is no penalty in student’s program. Students must register by the end of the semester of EDCI 35500 for Content Area Core and EDCI 34400 for Pedagogy Core.
