Professional Education - High School Certification -In addition to the general education core and preparation in the teaching field, all high school certification programs require a professional education sequence. The professional education sequence provides students with knowledge of the leaner, the teaching-learning process, effective teaching and classroom management strategies, and reading in the various content areas. It also provides a structured program of field experiences beginning with classroom observation and ending with student teaching.Students must have taken and passed the basic skills test upon completion of EDUC 3301 and before taking further professional education courses.

EDUC 2301 -- Introduction to Teaching

EDUC 2307 -- Child and Adolescent Development

EDUC 3301 -- Principles and Practices in Education

EDUC 3302 -- Instructional Strategies and Practices

EDUC 3313 -- Educating Students from Diverse Backgrounds

three hours from:

EDLI/ENGL 4345 -- Teaching English as a Second Language

EDLI 4328 -- Second Language Acquisition

EDSP 2304 -- Introduction to Special Education

** Minor in Mathematics:** The minor requires 21 hours, of which 12 hours must be upper division.

** **MATH 1306 -- Elementary Statistics

MATH 2306 -- Calculus I

MATH 2307 -- Calculus II

MATH 3302 -- Linear Algebra

MATH 3307 -- Mathematical Reasoning and Proof

MATH 4305 -- Intermediate Analysis

And three hours of upper-level mathematics electives

**Mathematics Major with Engineering or Computer Science Minor**

In essence, a student spends two and a half to three years at Wayland taking mathematics, science, and core requirements. Along with some summer work, the final two to two and a half years are spent at an Engineering school (like West Texas A&M or Texas Tech) taking engineering/computer science classes. Enough hours from the Engineering school are transferred back to Wayland to allow a student to obtain both a B.S. in Mathematics from Wayland (with a minor in engineering or computer science) and a B.S. in a specific field of engineering (civil, mechanical, etc.) or computer science. In their final semester, the student will also take Wayland’s Senior Seminar course (GRAD 0001 PL99).

Engineering is a five-year course of study and this program gives an attractive way to receive two degrees while completing most core and mathematics courses in a small college setting.

Courses to be completed at Wayland (with a 3.00 grade point average or better)

MATH 1306 -- Elementary Statistics

MATH 2306 -- Calculus I

MATH 2307 -- Calculus II

MATH 3300 -- Calculus III

MATH 3302 -- Linear Algebra

MATH 3303 -- Vector Mechanics

MATH 3307 -- Mathematical Reasoning and Proof

MATH 4302 -- Differential Equations

Courses to be completed at an Engineering UniversityThe Engineering school may require core curriculum classes not covered by Wayland’s core. If a student has not completed two years of a single foreign language in high school, at least two semesters of a single foreign language at the first-year college level is required. Choose from either engineering or computer science. Taking courses in the summer during the time courses are being taken at Wayland is recommended.

- Professional engineering courses depend upon the type of engineering chosen, and can range from 55 to 75 hours.Engineering

- Approximately 60 hours of computer science courses, and three hours of electrical engineering courses.Computer Science
