Education Major, BS in Education – VolsTeach Secondary STEM Concentration (Middle Grades Math Specialization)


Progression Requirements

Progression to the VolsTeach Secondary STEM concentration requires a 2.75 cumulative GPA after a minimum of 12 semester credits. Once candidates formally progress to the concentration, they must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 while in the program. Students must earn a grade of B or better in MEDU 434 , TPTE 496 , MEDU 405 , INPG 385 , and TPTE 435 , and a C or better in all math and science content or major courses. Students with less than a 2.75 GPA for two consecutive semesters will be dropped from the program. Students who fail to meet the standards for professional conduct during the course of their fieldwork will not be retained in the major.

uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students.
