The Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) in Mathematics: Secondary/Special Education 7-12 degree is designed for individuals interested in teaching middle and high school math in special education settings. The program develops students' knowledge of teaching, special education and math. This undergraduate degree program meets all education requirements for teaching certification in Pennsylvania.
Certification that includes Special Education may require an extra semester to complete.
