ODU's Integrated Mathematics Education program prepare students leads to licensure and prepares students to teach in grades 7-12.

Degree/licensure offered:
  • Bachelor of Science in Integrated Mathematics Education
  • Licensure in Integrated Mathematics Education
See also: Students majoring in Integrated Mathematics receive a solid foundation in mathematics with courses ranging from the calculus sequence to mathematical statistics and abstract algebra.

Advanced courses in linear algebra and geometry as well as a mathematics teaching methods course fill out the mathematics requirement.

Students also will take a variety of education courses covering education psychology, content area, as well as student teaching and principles of education.
  • Sample 4-Year Academic Plan for Integrated Math Education Majors
