A respected field and growing need.

The mathematics education major at Cornerstone University provides a route to Michigan certification so you can teach mathematics in a high school classroom. While training for the broader experience of teaching, you will also be specially equipped in the area of mathematics.

Taught from a Christ-centered perspective, your courses will provide you with the academic, technical and emotional knowledge needed in today's classrooms. Our program 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.

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 sought-after by schools throughout the nation.
