A respected field and growing need.

The Mathematics for Secondary Teachers major provides a route to Michigan certification to teach mathematics in a high school classroom. There is a significant and growing shortage of mathematics teachers in Michigan and across the nation. Teachers certified by the State of Michigan in mathematics and science are highly respected professionals and are sought-after by schools throughout the nation.

Program Distinctives

Demand for teachers of mathematics remains very strong. Cornerstone's Christian perspective helps aspiring teachers perceive their students as unique creations, deeply loved by their creator and worthy of the investment of education. This perspective develops teachers, who personally experience mathematics as a window to the beauty, creativity and order that God expresses in his creation and who communicate that passion to their students. Graduates with this major are thoroughly prepared both technically and personally to serve God through mathematics education.
