 Welcome to MSTI,  Math & Science Teacher Initiative website! This project is funded by the CSU Chancellor's office to address the serious shortage of math and science teachers. We strive to increase the number of competent credentialed math & science teachers graduating from CSU Los Angeles.                                                                              

Our goal is to build a clear pathway to expedite the degree/credential procedure and provide along the way intellectual, financial and social support for students aspiring to be math and science teachers.

In addition, we are working to build bridges with local high-schools and community colleges to encourage students to become high-school math or science teacher.

As a long-term goal, we also intend to propose curriculum developments to custom-fit the needs of high school math and science teachers.

Are you interested?

We are looking for dedicated students wanting to become math or science high-school/middle school teachers. We have 1) numerous  scholarships and forgivable loans for you, 2)

 faculty members from math, science and education willing to help and support you, and 3) customized curricula that will take you from start to finish in the shortest amount of time.
