The mathematics education major is designed to prepare teachers of mathematics at the middle and high school levels. USU’s math education program is recognized as the largest and the best in the state, with 100% of its graduates receiving teaching positions in school districts upon graduation. Students in the program learn much higher math than they will ever teach in middle school or high school, making them experts in their subject area. They also take methods courses where they learn how to teach the material to students and have early experience in actual classrooms, making them more familiar and comfortable with these settings before they begin their student teaching.
Students receive a BS by completing all required courses in the major. To receive a BA, students must also gain proficiency in one or more foreign languages.
Students who graduate in mathematics education are qualified to teach mathematics in middle schools and high schools.
Career Services provides counseling and information on hundreds of job and internship opportunities and even helps students apply and interview.
