The Mathematics Endorsement is an optional add-on for Education students. It can be added to any full license and results in licensure to teach Middle School Mathematics (Grades 5-8).

The credits can be taken in addition to a student’s plan of study, spread throughout semesters as their schedule permits pending prerequisites.
