Bachelor of Science in Foundational Mathematics

Do you want to be a middle school or high school math teacher? The Foundational Mathematics major at California Baptist University might be right for you. Foundational Mathematics is CBU’s response to California’s urgent need for math teachers.

Foundational Mathematics is a unique program, combining the foundations of a classical study of mathematics with the enhancements of courses in education theory and methods. The successful graduate of the Foundational Mathematics program will be exempt from the first two parts of the California Subject Examination for Teachers in mathematics. With this degree, and a California single subject teaching credential, you’ll be qualified to teach all math courses up to, but not including, Calculus and AP Statistics.

Other benefits of the Foundational Mathematics program include completing prerequisites for a teaching credential program while still an undergraduate student and having practical experience of teaching in a university-level math class. If you enjoy logic puzzles, the study of shapes and space and solving problems, mathematics is for you. If you want to learn how to be a caring and intuitive math teacher, then CBU’s Foundational Mathematics program is for you.
