About

A cohort model with small class sizes, an award-winning faculty, and extensive real-world teaching experience add up to prime preparation for teaching math at the middle and high school level. We offer a bachelor degree in Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia. 

Overview

Our Mathematics Education program at the University of Georgia combines studies in mathematics and the teaching of mathematics along with extensive field experiences to earn certification to teach in Georgia schools.

Highlights

  • Provides in-school experiences each semester
  • Cohort model helps students form personal and professional relationships
  • Earn certification to teach math in grades 6-12
  • Curriculum

    Continue your studies in the field of mathematics while exploring how to teach the subject. You will participate in field experiences to apply your coursework in the classroom.

    You will deepen your own understanding of mathematics through upper-level content courses while studying how to teach mathematics concepts to middle and high school students through courses covering:

    • Mathematics curriculum in grades 6-12
    • Teaching methods
    • Using technology in teaching and learning

    You will gain field experiences every semester. Begin by working with students one-on-one to gain experience in how students think and learn mathematics. You will progress to working with small groups of students to develop your abilities to support students' learning.

    In your third semester, you will design and implement activities with a classroom of students and learn how to facilitate discussions to maximize learning. In your final semester, you will teach and manage multiple classrooms during your student-teaching experience.

    Programme Structure

    Starting in your third year, you will take 60 hours related to your major, including:

    • 15 hours of upper-level mathematics
    • 9 hours of electives, including at least one math and one math education course
    • 21 hours during three semesters of courses in teaching math, including field experience
    • 15 hours of student teaching and a related seminar in the final semester
