As a mathematics education major, you’ll split your time between mathematics courses and education classes. Your education classes offer vital hands-on experience with 100 hours of classroom observation beginning in your second or third semester. As a student teacher, you’ll be one who gets students excited about all the facets of math. This comprehensive approach is one reason why our graduates are highly sought after in Virginia school systems.
Small classes and personalized attention are a given for our math education majors. Ally Carter, high school math teacher, and class of 2019 explains, “I am grateful for the way BU faculty poured into my life. Dr. and Mrs. Buterakos became like a second family to me. They are still a huge support system, offering encouragement and resources. Thanks to BU, I have a wealth of knowledge, in math and education, that I am figuring out how to implement in my own unique way!”
