The Mathematics - Teaching program at South Dakota State University is fairly unique in that our students receive a B.S. in Mathematics with Teaching Specialization rather than the more common B.S. in Education. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


The extra degree of mathematical mastery that comes with the B.S. in Mathematics allows our mathematics education graduates to give their own students the full benefit of a deep understanding of mathematics and how it will be used in their university studies and careers.  It also prepares our graduates exceptionally well for graduate school. 

If you love mathematics and want to make a difference in the lives of young people, SDSU’s B.S. in Mathematics with Education Specialization is a great way to go!
