Math defines our world; it is the language of the universe, underlying everything from the day-to-day of budgets and statistics to the intricacies of quantum mechanics.

The five-year B.S./M.S. in Mathematics and secondary mathematics education from Saint Joseph's University is designed for students who wish to become certified secondary school (grades 7-12) mathematics teachers. The program incorporates the four-year B.S. degree in mathematics with additional work during the summer and a fifth year to complete the M.S. in secondary mathematics education and to become certified. Given the numerous course requirements for the dual degrees and the certification, it is important that students talk with the mathematics education advisor about this program early in their careers to ensure they are taking appropriate courses. 


Graduates of the program are careful, precise, mature thinkers who have the intellectual preparation to apply their knowledge effectively, and communicate clearly, sharing their knowledge with others. Past majors have gone on to careers in actuarial science, finance, law, education, engineering, government, investment banking, software development and medicine.
