City University of Seattle offers a state-approved Endorsement in Mathematics for those interested in teaching math to children in grades five through 12. This program includes college-level math courses in geometry and measurement, calculus, probability and statistics, discrete mathematics, number sense and linear algebra. Then it ties your learning together with courses on math acquisition, secondary math teaching skills, and integration with other content areas.
- Online learning: Earn your math endorsement completely online, on your own schedule.
- Practitioner faculty: Our faculty of active secondary math teachers will give you the real-world knowledge and skills you need to teach effectively in today’s diverse classrooms.
Once you complete the 24 credit program, you can take the Washington Educator Skills Test (WEST-E ®) to meet your math teacher requirements and earn your endorsement.
Some students may become certified math teachers more quickly through our Alternative Route to Teacher Certification program. And others may prefer to complete our middle level math endorsement program and teach math to children in grades four through nine.
Mathematics has been identified as a high-need area due to teacher shortages, so adding a math endorsement can help expand your professional opportunities. Speak with our advisers today to learn more.
