About the courseSecondary school mathematics educators need to be mathematicians as well as skilled educators, so the Mathematics Education Specialists take the same challenging core upper level mathematics courses as those math majors pursuing other professional goals. In addition to this rigorous mathematics curriculum, Mathematics Education Specialists take the full block of education courses. This program allows graduates to find meaningful careers in secondary education, as well as preparing students for graduate study.The world becomes more technologically sophisticated every year. As a result, so do the best careers. If our nations young people are to be prepared for those careers, theyre going to need the help of skilled mathematics educators such as those prepared by the SDSU mathematics education program. Our program is fairly unique in that our students receive a B.S. in Mathematics with Education Specialization rather than the more common B.S. in Education. 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
