This degree program prepares teacher-leaders to have a deep understanding of the mathematics they will teach and knowledge about different pedagogical strategies they can apply in the classroom. Students take five courses focused on mathematics education, beginning in their sophomore year. Our professional courses in the junior and senior year offer relevant pedagogical experiences, emphasize teaching mathematics with technology, and provide rich field experiences in math classrooms. Graduates are recommended for an initial North Carolina teaching license. They will be able to seek employment opportunities in education and make a positive difference in their communities.
