 Fulfills the baccalaureate capstone requirement.

2

Acceptable elective courses include any math or statistics course at the F300 level or above, and CS F201. At least 15 credits must be math courses (In some cases, courses with strong mathematical content from other disciplines may be used as electives. Such an elective must be approved by an advisor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The requirement that at least 15 credits be math courses still applies).

Note: All mathematics majors — including double majors — must have an advisor from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Note: At least 12 approved mathematics credits at the F300 level or above must be taken while in residence on the Fairbanks campus.

Requirements for Mathematics Teachers (Grades 7-12)

We strongly recommend that prospective secondary science teachers seek advising from the UAF School of Education early in your undergraduate degree program, so that you can be appropriately advised of the State of Alaska requirements for teacher licensure. You may choose to pursue a double major with education or complete a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program.
