The Middle School Mathematics/Science Education program is designed to prepare teachers to teach middle school students in two content areas. The track is intended for undergraduate students who wish to teach middle level mathematics and science. This model of two certification areas conforms to the certification patterns recommended by the National Middle School Association. The Middle School program provides preservice teachers with an appropriate knowledge base and needed experiences in curriculum, instruction, and evaluation of ten- to fourteen-year-old students. The program is particularly aimed at helping provide qualified entry-level teachers for area middle/junior high schools. Those who take the Mathematics/Science track will be prepared to teach mathematics/science in the middle grades. Studying many of the college-level mathematics courses will not only strengthen these future teachers understanding and ability to do mathematics but will also improve their knowledge of science. Much of what these future teachers study in college-level science courses will also broaden their knowledge of concepts and applications of mathematics.
Those entering the College of Education and Human Services must meet University admissions requirements as well as specific COEHS admissions criteria.
