B.S. in Mathematics (minor in Education)

The Citadel/CCSD (in progress) Math Education Program: B.S. degree in Mathematics with an Education Minor provides students with the flexibility to pursue a teaching career in mathematics.  Having a partnership with the Charleston County School District, this program will prepare each student to be ready to teach high school mathematics in the lowcountry right after graduation.

The course of study leading to the B.S. with a major in Mathematics with an Education minor includes 24 semester hours of general electives. The required courses are 4 semester hours of computer science (CSCI 201) and the following 40 semester hours of core mathematics: MATH 131, MATH 132, MATH 206, MATH 231, MATH 234, MATH 240, MATH 303, MATH 305, STAT 361, MATH 403, MATH 470, and MATH 495. In addition, the student must select 12 hours of Approved (Mathematics) Electives from among the mathematics courses numbered at the 300 or 400 level plus 5 courses in education.
