Mathematics, Bachelor of Science with a Concentration in Mathematics Teaching (B.S.)
Program Objectives
Upon successful completion of this program, the graduate will:
 be able to apply mathematical techniques to social, economic, and scientific problems;
 understand the importance and power of mathematics in our rapidly changing technological age;
 be prepared to pursue a graduate program in this or a related area; and
 be well qualified for employment in any position requiring undergraduate training in mathematics.
In addition, students in the Teaching concentration will be prepared for certification to teach mathematics at the secondary level. Refer to the College of Education section of this Catalog regarding several teacher certification requirements associated with this degree program.
