Mathematics BS(General Mathematics)/Mathematics Education MAT(non-thesis)

Students who complete the M.A.T. Program and the related certification assessments are eligible for T-5 Georgia secondary (grades 6-12) mathematics certification. University of Georgia graduates with mathematics teaching certification are highly recruited for secondary teaching positions throughout the state of Georgia.

Admission to Program

Students will apply to Double Dawgs pathway by the third Friday in August of year three of the undergraduate program. This application not only includes applying to the Double Dawgs pathway through the Athena system, but also submission of an initial teacher certification application to the Mathematics Education program. Application information for the initial teacher certification application can be found at this webpage (https://coe.uga.edu/academics/degrees/bsed-math-education) under the How to Apply section.

Applicants will follow the undergraduate Mathematics Education admittance requirements which include: an overall grade point average of at least 2.75; successful completion of MATH 2250, MATH 2260, and MATH 3200, each course with a grade of C or better; Passing scores on the GACE Program Admissions Assessment or exemption through ACT/SAT or GRE; Completion of at least 30 clock hours of tutoring pre-college students in a structured setting in the mathematics of grades 6-12 with required documentation, an essay reflecting on your tutoring experience, and an evaluation by a supervisor or coordinator. Students may apply to the program while these courses and tutoring are in progress, and upon meeting the requirements the following formula will be used to determine admittance: Grade in MATH 2250 + Grade in MATH 2260 + Grade in MATH 3200 + Overall Grade Point Average must be a minimum of 9.75 for admittance to the program.
