The goal of the Mathematics for Secondary Education program is to equip students with the needed mathematics knowledge, instructional strategies, foundational awareness of education, and teaching experiences to become successful teachers of middle or high school mathematics. Students who are interested in teaching in community college settings or at universities are encouraged to pursue this degree.
Students majoring in Mathematics for Secondary Education receive a Bachelor's of Science degree from the Mathematics and Computer Science Department in addition to a Bachelor's of Science degree from the School of Education. This dual-degree program gives our graduates a competitive advantage, as they can demonstrate deep mathematical knowledge and comprehensive preparation for teaching.
All programs are to be planned in careful consultation with a departmental adviser and be approved by that adviser.
