Ideal for an education major who also loves math and would like to become more marketable, the Middle Level Math program lets you become licensed in math grades 5-8.
At MNU, mathematics and education content is taught both separately and through courses that integrate mathematics content, pedagogy, and technology.
Field and clinical experiences in 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 93% pass rate for their content areas of the PRAXIS exam.
Application to the teacher education program is a separate admission process than applying to MNU.
"I really enjoyed Methods of Math. I was able to take the learning from my education classes and my math classes and put it into action. I loved how this class was shaped as more of a team effort with my classmates, professor, and cooperating teacher; rather than a bunch of individual assignments."
“I believe that exploring Creation through mathematical modeling gives us a better understanding of God, our Creator. God reveals His beauty and character in many ways, and mathematics is one of those ways.”
Mark Brown, PhD
Expert professors have a passion for mathematics that will develop your ability to think logically and creatively. You’ll find the small classes, close relationships with PhD faculty, essential friendships with fellow students and our faith perspective is a perfect fit.
