The Joint Math/Ed Program (JMEP) is a collaborative effort of the UCLA Mathematics Department and the Graduate School of Education's Teacher Education Program. In this program, students begin work toward a California Preliminary Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics and a Master of Education degree during their senior year, and complete this coursework by the end of the academic year immediately following completion of their bachelor's degree. The program enables students to earn a full time salary while teaching full time in Los Angeles urban schools during the academic year immediately following their bachelor's degree.
For more information and to apply, please go to the UCLA Curtis Center for Mathematics and Teaching. Also see UCLA Graduate School of Education Undergraduate Programs.
Math Subject Matter Preparation
Applicants for a California Preliminary Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics must verify their "subject matter competence" to teach mathematics in one of two ways: 1) complete a CA-approved "subject matter program" and obtain verification of completion from the university with the approved program or 2) achieve a passing score on the three part California Subject Matter Examination for Teachers (CSET).
The UCLA Mathematics Department is one of three UC campuses with a CA-approved subject matter program in mathematics. The courses comprising the program are listed on on the Math Department website (follow the link below for additional information). Students who complete the Mathematics for Teaching major will automatically complete the department's CA-approved subject matter program. At the end of their senior year, students may request a letter from the Mathematics Department's Undergraduate Office verifying their completion of these courses and thus their subject matter competence for the CA Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics.
For more information, see UCLA Curtis Center for Mathematics and Teaching.
Math for Teaching Major
The Math for Teaching Major is designed for students who have a substantial interest in teaching mathematics at the secondary level.
The Teaching Secondary Mathematics Minor is designed for students majoring in fields other than mathematics who plan to teach secondary mathematics after graduation. For non-majors joining the Mathematics Department and School of Education's Joint Mathematics Education Program (JMEP), the minor provides recognition for completion of prerequisite coursework for the program. This coursework also prepares students for content on the Math CSET exam.
