Mathematics - B.S. (Licensure)

The program provides students the opportunity to follow a course of study leading to a B.S. in mathematics (licensure). Graduates of this program obtain licensure at the secondary level.

The curriculum consists of courses covering the General Education Curriculum (GEC), mathematics and computer science courses, and courses aimed at preparing the students for state licensure.

The Professional Education Unit at The University of Southern Mississippi is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

Students need 124 hours to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics (licensure). Both the Hattiesburg and Gulf Park campuses offer this degree program.

To gain proficiency in teaching mathematics at secondary schools, pre-service teachers are required to take 42 hours of mathematics courses, 35 hours of teacher licensure courses and three hours of a computer science course. These, together with GEC courses, prepare pre-service teachers to have sufficient content knowledge and instructional skills for teaching in the secondary schools.
