Mathematics Education B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education degree programs are intended for students who want to teach mathematics at pre-college level.  This professional degree program prepares students for mathematics teaching at the elementary, middle/junior high, or secondary level. The program is coordinated with the education department’s teacher certification programs. 

Majors must choose from the options of:

  • Elementary/Middle School (K-8) option
  • Secondary School option

Required Courses

For a list of required courses, please visit the Mathematics & Statistics Course Catalog.

*The elementary option requires full certification from the five-year program. Students may complete the degree requirements for middle/junior high or secondary option with full teacher certification in either four or five years. Students electing the four-year option must plan for one semester of student teaching (EDUC 694) in their senior year; this requires careful planning with a program adviser concerning the scheduling of mathematics courses. The five-year program requires a year-long teaching internship in the fifth year that can be coupled with other graduate work leading to a master’s degree.

​Standards for Graduation

In all courses used to satisfy the requirements for its major programs, the Department of Mathematics & Statistics requires that a student earn a grade of C- or better and have an overall grade-point average of at least 2.00 in these courses.
