More About the Mathematics Major
- About the Mathematics Major (from the RCNJ Majors & Minors website).
- Teacher Education Program is a program and not a major. That is, students pursuing a teaching certification must choose a major (for instance, mathematics, or biology, etc.) and follow the requirements of the Teacher Education Program.
- Ramapo College students majoring in Mathematics with “Teacher Education Track” obtain:
- A teaching certification in Secondary Education, called Content Endorsement (for teaching typically grades 6-12), by fulfilling the Secondary Education requirements of the Teacher Education Program,
- or they can obtain a teaching certification in Elementary Education, called Elementary Endorsement, by fulfilling the Elementary Education requirements of the Teacher Education Program.
- Any student who is on their way to obtain the Secondary Education certification is only a few steps away from obtaining the Elementary Education certification in addition to the Secondary Education. Contact the Teacher Education Program for more details, as for some college students it is worth obtaining both certifications. It does not work the other way around, that is, it takes a lot more steps to get a Secondary Education certification for students who are obtaining an Elementary Education certification.
