About the Program
This is a challenging high caliber program. Students applying for this program should have a GPA above a 3.0.
In the education courses for this pathway, students will engage in fieldwork which counts towards the 600 Clinical Practice hours required for a CA teaching credential. Therefore, we recommend that students take no more than two mathematics courses per quarter while in the program to make adequate room for the required CA credential coursework.
In addition to the course within the Math Department and Graduate School of Education, students will need to complete additional requirements set by California. See California Teaching Credential for specific tests and waivers you need to apply for throughout your years at UCLA.
We encourage students to complete Math 73XP and Math 74XP in their freshmen and sophomore years to learn about current issues, standards, and research in K-12 mathematics instruction. These courses provide students field work hours that count towards the 600 Clinical Practice hours.
