At MNU, you'll take many in-depth and independent courses on mathematics and education, but you'll also learn how to connect the areas of math content, teaching and technology. Field and student teaching experiences at a variety of school districts enable you to gain a deeper understanding of the diversity of educational needs. And educational travel can expand your learning even more, allowing you to teach in diverse international settings.
We offer valuable networking opportunities through our Math Club, Pi Lambda Theta—our Education Honors Society, and our Professional Teacher Candidate Organization. Scholarship
opportunities are also available to you—John Stephens Memorial Scholarships and Mathematics Scholarship as well as Education and TEACH grant scholarships. These are awarded to sophomores, juniors and seniors based on performance and financial need.
As a graduate you will complete all Kansas requirements for teacher certification. Our faculty will also help you find out how to become certified in other states, and many are similar to Kansas requirements. Recent graduates scored a 100% pass rate for their content areas of the PRAXIS exam.
