**If You Are Interested in CSUN'S State-Approved Programs in Mathematics**

The CSUN Mathematics Department offers three options in the mathematics major for students who intend to teach secondary school mathematics. These three programs are approved by the State of California, which means that if you complete one of them satisfactorily, you will have established subject matter competence in mathematics. The programs are:

**1. **Option II, Secondary Teaching of the Mathematics Major __http://www.csun.edu/~kme52026/teaching.html__

**2.** Four-Year Integrated Mathematics Teacher Credential Program (FYI) __http://www.csun.edu/~kme52026/fyimath.html____: begins in the freshman year and allows a student to complete the math major and preliminary single subject credential simultaneously in four years.__

**3.**Junior-Year Integrated Mathematics Teacher Credential Program (JYI) __http://www.csun.edu/~kme52026/jyimath.html____: begins after a student has completed all lower division math core and general education courses. This option allows a student to complete the math major and preliminary single subject credential simultaneously.
__

In order to establish subject matter competence, you must complete the Secondary Teaching Option, FYI, or JYI with no grade below a C in any course required for the math major (including lower division core courses) and an overall GPA in the same courses of at least 2.6.

If you complete a state-approved program, you may qualify for a second bachelor's degree, in mathematics. Please read the information about getting a second bachelor's degree at __http://www.csun.edu/a&r/grad/secondba.html__
