#### Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education provides a strong background in mathematics while introducing undergraduate students to the field of education. Upon completion of this degree students are prepared to enter a graduate licensure program to earn their teaching credentials.

The program includes a wide array of courses meant to expand student’s mathematical content knowledge from calculus to upper level mathematics. Students also take two courses that allow them a deeper understanding of familiar mathematical topics, as well as a capstone course in which they study high school mathematics from an advanced viewpoint.

In addition, students take other courses with accompanying field experiences designed to provide them with a foundation in the educational process. During each practicum, (i.e., field experience), each student spends time in a middle or high school math classroom observing teachers, interacting with students, and learning how students think about and understand mathematics.

Thus, students who earn the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education graduate with a solid understanding of mathematics and are ready to delve into preparing themselves for classroom teaching.
