To teach math, you must first know math. That’s why the B.S. in Secondary Education in Mathematics prepares you to teach content across the seventh- to twelfth-grade curriculum. The program emphasizes mathematics-specific content, including practical experiences in the field—giving you confidence to educate, challenge, and support your future students.
