About this Program
The math education degree is an interdisciplinary program that requires study in both the School of Education and the School of Math and Sciences and leads to a Texas state teaching certification to teach math courses in grades 7 through 12.
The math education program provides students opportunities to gain experience from tutoring or assistant teaching, as well as extensive training through field-based observation. To best prepare for a career in the classroom, math education majors often prepare and deliver unit presentations in class.
To help them fully embrace the interdisciplinary nature of the math education degree, majors enhance the learning experience through membership in the student organizations of both the School of Education and the School of Math and Sciences.
Students seeking a bachelor’s degree in math education will complete 49 hours of upper-level study compiled from professional education courses like Classroom Management and field-specific studies such as Calculus, Modern Geometry, and Spatial Concepts for Teachers.

The major is specifically for teacher education and requires 36 semester hours in the major, of which 22 are upper level.
