Teacher candidates who are not certain about which certification fields to pursue may find some guidance in the list of majors and certification fields found below. Your college major may have been named so uniquely that you don't find it in the list. If that is the case, refer to a major in the list similar to yours. For example if your major was “Applied Mathematics” (not found in the list), you would refer to “Applied Mathematical Sciences” which is related to eight different certification fields.
