Notes

  1. All students who are interested in going to IBEX should consult their adviser as early as possible.
  2. All students in the Mathematics Education emphasis are strongly urged to take ED400 and ED410 during their last two years, in addition to the courses required for the bachelor’s degree as a preparation for the Teaching Credential Program. Contact the Department of Liberal Studies & Education for more information.
  3. A maximum of two (non-general education) upper division courses from another department may be used to satisfy the “additional upper division mathematics courses” requirement, subject to the prior approval of the student’s adviser.
