We make the program extremely flexible, allowing you to choose any 5 of the following courses:

MATH 511   Number Theory
MATH 521   Modern Geometry
MATH 530   Linear Algebra
MATH 532   Modern Algebra
MATH 542   Probability and Statistics

How do certificates differ from degrees?

Citadel graduate degrees require up to 12 courses. With only five courses, certificates offer a more direct route to your professional goals.

What will my certificate say?

The certificate will state: The Citadel, School of Science and Mathematics awards [Your Name] a five-course Graduate Certificate in Mathematics Education.


*Up to 6 hours of previous coursework or coursework from outside the Citadel may be counted toward this degree. 
**Based on current in-state tuition rates.
