Filling a need for math teachers.
The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education is a secondary education program addressing the continuing shortage of highly qualified teachers in Georgia.
Advisors, selected for both their teaching skill and experience in high school classrooms, model techniques proven to work in high school settings when teaching their college content courses.
Designed to produce teachers who have more “hands-on” experience, the Mathematics Education program enables candidates to observe and assist with teaching in 6-12th grade classrooms.
Candidates also experience the impact that diversity has on schooling and consider the implications on teaching and learning.
Candidates study and reflect upon the knowledge, skills, and dispositions (habits of mind) required for successful teachers-both in their college classes and during fieldwork.
Requiring a content major in the field of study, this program culminates in a full year Apprentice Teaching experience in area schools.
Dual Degree: BS to Master of Arts in Teaching
Students anticipating a career teaching mathematics in grades 6-12 may pursue either
(a) the program beginning in the freshman year leading toward certification at the T-4 level, or
(b) the Dual-Degree Program, leading to a master of arts in teaching (M.A.T.) secondary mathematics or recommendation for T-5 certification.
Students may enter the T-4 program up to the first semester of the junior year. After that, the Dual-Degree Program is the only option.
