Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Mathematics Education Concentration
The Bachelor of Science, Mathematics Education Concentration, leads to a strong degree in mathematics while introducing undergraduate students to the field of education. This degree prepares students to enter a graduate licensure program to earn their teaching credentials.
In their junior and senior years, students take courses that provide them with a foundation in education and that have accompanying filed experiences. During each practicum, a student spends time in a middle or high school mathematics classroom, observing teachers, interacting with students, and learning how understand student thinking about mathematics.
In addition to mathematics courses that extend their mathematical content knowledge to upper-level mathematics, students choose from mathematics courses that teach them to learn familiar mathematical topics more deeply. Thus, students who earn the mathematics education concentration graduate with a solid understanding of mathematics and are ready to delve into preparing themselves for classroom teaching.
Important: The above checklist should be used only with consultation with your department advisor to ensure that you meet all requirements for graduation.
