In Short

Students within our mathematics major can pursue initial licensure as high school mathematics teachers.

Program Overview

This program provides students with both a broad introduction to high school teaching and specific instruction in the theory, research and practice of secondary mathematics teaching. Students engage in field-based experiences in the school setting supervised by our faculty through on-site pre-practicum experiences coupled with each teaching course and a formal teaching practicum as the capstone experience.

Students pursuing this option will have to fulfill the degree requirements for the mathematics major with some restricted electives, as well as the requirements for initial teacher licensure in secondary education.
