Secondary Certification

Note: Course requirements for the Education Minor are subject to change in order to meet Maryland State Department of Education certification regulations and accreditation requirements.

Students interested in teaching Mathematics at the secondary level (grades 7-12) in Maryland public schools major in Mathematics and complete a core set of secondary education requirements. In addition to the major course requirements, specific Mathematics courses are required of education minors. Students are encouraged to meet with department advisors as soon as possible to incorporate these required courses in their program planning for the major. Upon completion of McDaniel’s approved program in the Mathematics subject area, and the Bachelor’s degree with the minor in education, candidates will be eligible for initial teaching certification at the secondary level in Maryland. Students who desire certification in another state should become familiar with certification requirements in that state and discuss plans with an education advisor.
