### Mathematics (B.A.)

Administered by: Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics

Effective Fall 2009

Advisement should be considered before selecting general education courses in this major. In addition to general education credits and electives to meet the university's.

Students seeking Secondary Education Certification in Mathematics must declare majors in both Mathematics and Secondary Education (Mathematics) and complete the full Mathematics BA course sequence as well as the Secondary Education Professional Course and Certification requirements. Students must consult their advisers in both departments each semester regarding course selection and other certification requirements. Full program requirements for students seeking Secondary Education Certification in Mathematics may be found at http://www.bloomu.edu/catalog/f2009/cops/sec_math.php
