Elementary Teacher Licensure: Mathematics and Computer Technology
Degree: Bachelor of Science (B.S.) with a major in mathematics and computer technology (126 credit hours) Requirements are subject to change.
The Springfield College mathematics and computer technology program provides students with a basic program of study in mathematics, computer science, and digital art that will prepare students for entry-level positions that require skills in those areas. Students selecting this major may also major in education and seek licensure as an elementary (grades1-6) and special education teacher. Teacher Licensure is available within this major, resulting in the opportunity to become state certified. Visit the office of Educator Preparation and Licensure for details.
Students enrolled in the major are required to complete a core curriculum consisting of computer science, digital art, and mathematics courses plus one of three concentrations: computer science, mathematics, or mathematics and computer technology learning applications (for students completing the elementary and special education teacher licensure program). Students not seeking teacher licensure are encouraged to pursue internship opportunities through the Springfield College Career Center in order to gain on-the-job experience.
