Degree Options

BAE Mathematics/Elementary (K8)
This degree provides students with a strong background in the mathematical concepts they will need for teaching mathematics to students in elementary school. In addition to gaining a strong understanding of mathematical content, students learn to engage elementary school students in handson activities that promotes their understanding of difficult concepts

Middle Level Math Endorsement
Three Options are Outlined in the Overview

BAE Mathematics/Secondary (512)
The BAE Mathematics/Secondary degree provides students with a strong background in mathematical concepts they will need for teaching mathematics to students in school at secondary grade levels. In addition to gaining a strong understanding of mathematical content, students learn to engage secondary grade level students in activities that promotes their understanding of difficult concepts.

Secondary Mathematics Endorsement
A Mathematics/Secondary Endorsement is generally required in order to teach mathematics at the secondary level (Grades: 512). This endorsement may be obtained through a BAE Secondary/Mathematics Major or Minor.

MA in Teaching K9 Mathematics (Not accepting students. On hold pending revision.)
This program is intended for certifited elementary or middlelevel teachers who desire to improve their mathematics teaching.

BA Mathematics
The program leading to the BA in mathematics is especially strong, and is unique within the region. The department strives to promote excellence; it fields teams for the Putnam competition and prepares students for actuarial exams. It also sponsors a chapter of the mathematical honor society, Pi Mu Epsilon. Recent graduates are successfully pursuing careers in industry or doctoral work at toplevel universities.

BA Mathematics (Statistics)
The program of study that leads to an option in statistics provides students with excellent preparation for actuarial exams or careers where statistics is used in applied research.

BA Mathematics (Economics)
Students with an interest in the application of mathematics to economics are encouraged to pursue the Economics Option of the BA in Mathematics. This program requires courses in economics, and it requires mathematics courses that are used in the study of advanced courses in economics.

BA Mathematics (Computer Science)
Students with an interest in mathematics and computer science pursue this program of study, and it provides them with knowledge and skills that are attractive to a broad spectrum of employers.

Master of Science Programs in Mathematics (Not accepting students.)
The Masters of Science program in mathematics is designed to meet the needs of students seeking employment in business and industry, those seeking careers in education at the elementary, secondary and postsecondary level, as well as students preparing for doctoral study in mathematics. The programs are rigorous and prepare the student for an increasingly competitive workplace. Graduates of these programs are highly successful professionals, scientists and teachers; many have earned doctorates.
