Students who wish to teach mathematics may obtain initial certification by completing the Mathematics Adolescence Education program and the required courses in Professional Education. New York State mandates that Adolescence Education majors demonstrate competence in a language other than English (American Sign Language, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish). Proficiency requirement met by the following:

  • Fredonia Placement Exam determination of Fredonia Foundations courses 100 and 110 in the same World Language or course 110 (or higher) in World Language.
  • Proficiency may also be fulfilled by qualifying AP, IB, CLEP Exam scores or transferred courses of Elem I and Elem II of same language, as verified by Registrar’s Office.

The General Education foreign language requirement meets the certification requirement.

A candidate who receives a Satisfactory standing in the Student Teaching placement must also receive a passing grade in their co-requisite Seminar/Methods course to advance. 

Students may double major in Mathematics Adolescence Education and Mathematics, or in Mathematics Adolescence Education and Applied Mathematics by completing all of the requirements for both majors.
