In order to meet Wyoming teacher certification standards, you also need to take courses from the UW College of Education.  You must declare a major in Mathematics Secondary Education (MSEC) and be advised by a College of Education advisor prior to enrollment in Professional Education courses. A concurrent major is a single degree program consisting of a B.A. degree from the College of Education, with majors in Secondary Education and in Mathematics. This program of study meets the “highly qualified” criteria under the federal No Child Left Behind legislation. A minimum UW Total Institution GPA of 2.50 is required to change your major to Education and your GPA must be at least 2.75 to enter Phases II and III of the Wyoming Teacher Education Program. Your mathematics content grade point average must be at least 2.50 in order to enter Phase III (Methods and Student teaching) of the WTEP.
