On Campus

Earning a math teaching endorsement opens the door for employment opportunities in schools across Nebraska and nationwide. UNK's College of Education has cultivated a reputation for producing Nebraska's top teachers for more than a century, preparing graduates for rewarding careers that inspire the next generation.

Students in the math teaching program get to interact in classrooms early and often and UNK’s close partnership with Kearney and area schools gives them numerous hands-on opportunities through both early field experiences and student teaching. Faculty know the value of practical learning and guide students in these field experiences.

After completing the program requirements, you will have a strong mathematical background in all areas needed for middle and high school teaching, including calculus, geometry, statistics and teaching pedagogy. Classes for mathematics education majors are taught by full-time professional staff who are dedicated to your success, with specialties ranging from mathematics education to applied and abstract mathematics. The advanced classes often have fewer than a dozen students, allowing faculty to provide you with more personalized instruction.

The 7-12 Math Field Endorsement program helped me develop a better understanding of teaching methods I could use to help my students not only grasp the concepts, but also have a deeper understanding about the material. It was very beneficial to work with professors who truly cared how you did in the courses and were interested in what your future plans were. If you are looking for a program where professors care, are willing to work with you one-on-one and care about your success and future, get your endorsement through the 7-12 Math program at UNK.
