CSUN NSF
Teaching Fellows (TFs) will earn
single subject mathematics teaching credentials and master’s degrees
in mathematics
education or mathematics
(Option I or II). (Up to 6 units of credential coursework
may be counted as electives for the master's degrees in mathematics
education and mathematics option I. Up to 9 units of credential coursework
may be counted as electives for the master's in mathematics option II.)
Courses for the master's in mathematics education are described here.
Courses for the master's in mathematics, options I or II are described

TFs
will earn $15,000 stipends during their credentialing year and
$50,000 over four years in salary supplements during their
initial teaching years.
TFs will earn their single subject mathematics teaching
credentials
within one year, so that they are teaching full time by their second
year in the program.
SINGLE SUBJECT
MATHEMATICS TEACHING CREDENTIAL
The Accelerated Collaborative
Teacher Education Program (ACT) is an accelerated, twosemester
preliminary credential program and the traditional
preliminary single subject math program is selfpaced. Both
programs lead to a preliminary credential in mathematics
for
teaching at the middle school and high school levels. TFs MUST complete
the preliminary credential within one year and thus the ACT Program is
recommended. (Students who opt to do the traditional credential program
must take courses during the Spring or Summer 2011 term.)
