Bachelor of Science in Mathematics  Certification as Secondary School Teacher
The Bachelor of Science in mathematics program with certification is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of mathematics and its subfields, to give students the opportunity to master advanced material in mathematics and allied disciplines, and to provide a path for certification for mathematics teaching in grades 9 through 12. This program requires additional mathematics courses beyond those required for the Bachelor of Arts in mathematics with certification program and thus offers students the ability to explore advanced topics and mathematics more extensively. This program allows students to pursue individualized independent study and undergraduate research with faculty members. This program equips students to teach the variety of mathematics courses offered at the high school level and to communicate the connections between various mathematical ideas in a manner appropriate for high school students. Graduates of this program are soughtafter candidates for teaching positions across South Carolina and beyond, and often pursue further education at graduate schools in mathematics, education, and allied disciplines.
The Teacher Education Professional Education Sequence is pending the approval of the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education.
