Degree Options: At PFW undergraduates who plan to be licensed to teach high school mathematics complete two degrees—one is a BS in Mathematics, the other is a BSEd in Secondary Education. Both degrees are integrated into an 8-semester 120-credit program. Those who wish to only teach middle school complete an Elementary Education degree with a concentration in mathematics and one other content area.
Description: During their senior year, our students participate in an intensive 60 hour field experience where they collaborate with 1-3 peers and a classroom teacher to plan, implement, reflect on and revise lessons for a full unit of study for middle or high school math classes. This program is connected to their Secondary Mathematics Methods course.

Degree Options: USI offers a Bachelor of Science (or Bachelor of Arts) degree in the following subjects: Mathematics Teaching (Grades 5-12); Elementary Education (with an Elementary Mathematics Minor); Elementary Education (with an Elementary/Middle School Mathematics Minor)
Description: Students enrolled in the Math Teaching program at USI often praise the strong support provided by faculty and small class sizes that allow students to build relationships with individual faculty. Majors in the Department of Mathematical Sciences have designated space in the department to work, socialize, and collaborate. A Teaching Eagles Scholarship Program benefits students who want to pursue STEM teaching majors and minors with significant financial assistance for tuition. Prospective mathematics teachers have at least three opportunities to engage in K-12 classrooms prior to their student teaching semester. These field-based experiences provide new teachers with rich experiences to learn to teach in school settings. USI’s student teaching involves a co-teaching model, where teaching supervisors work to teach simultaneously with classroom teachers. Students also participate in a number of student-led organizations, including Mathematics Club and Student Education Association. Situated on a beautiful 1400+ acre campus, USI is home to a vibrant campus life and a unique housing environment.
