Mathematics Secondary Education Certification

If you have a passion for mathematics and a desire to serve others through teaching, a Mathematics Secondary Education Certification from USF will prepare you for meaningful service in the classroom.

This degree provides you with a solid mathematical foundation to equip you as a high school math instructor who has pedagogical awareness and practical educational experience. Once you complete this program, you will have a B.S. degree in Mathematics and certification for teaching at the high school level.

The requirements for the Mathematics Secondary Education Certification are twofold. First you must take the required courses for the Mathematics major. Then you must complete the courses required for the Secondary Education major, including MAT 303 Foundations of Geometry and MAT 406 Teaching High School Mathematics.

Mathematics Minor

Students who meet the regular degree requirements of the University for a major in some other program may receive a minor in mathematics by completing 18 s.h. of math courses, which must include MAT 204 and MAT 205, but may not include a course numbered below 150. Two semesters of science colloquium (NSC 300), including one presentation, must also be taken for credit.
