ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2017 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The Mathematics FSU-Teach major is designed for students who wish to teach Mathematics at the middle and/or secondary education levels. Students are strongly encouraged to have credit for College Algebra (MAC1105) prior to enrolling as freshman in the Mathematics FSU-Teach major. This degree should not be used by someone planning to do graduate work in mathematics.

In order to be admitted for the second major in Education, students must have an overall 2.50 gpa, and satisfy the teacher education admission requirements noted here:

(Please note: FSU-Teach majors are not required to take EDF1005, EDF2085, or EME2040)
