The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requires all high school teachers who teach dual-credit or other college-level courses to hold a master's degree in the field, or to have a master's degree in another area (such as education), plus at least 18 credit hours of graduate coursework in the discipline. The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics provides these 18 discipline-specific credit hours.
Applicants must possess a B.A. or B.S. in Mathematics, or a related bachelor’s degree in education with a mathematics specialization, concentration, or outside area; or two years of secondary teaching experience in dual-credit mathematics classes.
To earn the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics, students must complete 18 credit hours. Requirements are broken down as follows:
- Mathematics core courses (9 credit hours)
- Mathematics elective courses (9 credit hours)
