The Teaching Profession

Certification as a Secondary Education Teacher

General Information

The Department of Mathematics and the Richard W. Riley College of Education work together to offer certification for high school mathematics teaching (grades 9-12). Undergraduate options for certification include the B.A. and B.S. programs in mathematics.

Students must meet all requirements for admission to the Teacher Education Program and complete its core curriculum. Information on teacher certification is available through the Student Academic Services office in the Richard W. Riley College of Education.

If you are interested in becoming certified to teach secondary (high school) mathematics, you should indicate your interest on your admission application. If you need further information regarding teacher certification in mathematics, you should contact the academic admission office in the Richard W. Riley College of Education (803/323-2154) or the Department of Mathematics (803/323-2175).

It is important to make this decision early in order to meet all of the requirements. The steps include filing a declaration of intent, passing the Praxis I series, completing laboratory experiences, completing a speech and hearing exam, filing a formal application for admission to teacher education, successfully completing prerequisite courses, and a full semester of student teaching.
