LIBERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM AND WRITING REQUIREMENTS
Liberal Education Program
46 Credits Required
Students must complete a comprehensive three-tiered Liberal Education Program (LEP). View all requirements of the tiers on the Liberal Education Program.
While the choice of courses that fulfill the requirements is generally left up to students, some departments require that students select specific courses to complement their major. This major has specific Tier requirements/restrictions for the following:
Tier 1 – Quantitative Reasoning:
MAT 150 – Calculus I (‘C+‘ or better)
Tier 2 - Creative Drive
MAT 260 - Geometry and the Arts
Tier 2 – Mind and Body:
SHE 203 – School Health
Tier 2 - Social Structure, Conflict, and Consensus
EDU 200 - Teachers, Schools, and Society
Tier 3 – Capstone:
MAT 496 – Student Teaching Seminar - Mathematics
Writing Requirements (“W-Courses”)
Three W-courses are required. These may not be taken until after a student has passed ENG 112 — Writing Arguments. W-courses may count toward LEP, major, or cognate requirements, as well as free electives. Course sections that meet this requirement are designated by section numbers ending in “W”.
Transfer students who enter with 60 to 89 credits are required to pass two W-courses, while transfer students who enter with 90 credits or more must pass one W-course.
61 Credits Required

A grade of C+ or better is required in MAT 151. Furthermore, in those MAT courses which the student applies toward the major, he/she must have a minimum GPA of 2.3, no grade below a C-, and in at least 50% of the courses must have a grade of B- or better. Note that for certification candidates, MAT GPA is calculated using MAT 150 and all required MAT courses shown below (this includes replacement grades - only one grade replacement will be dropped). This GPA will be calculated by the Mathematics Certification Coordinator and, in most cases, will not match the area GPA.
