Educational Studies (BS)

Mathematics Specialization

Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Hastings, Program Coordinators

Graduates of the Educational Studies program will have a broad, foundational knowledge of educational theory and practices as well as strong content knowledge in their chosen area of specialization. These knowledge bases should well prepare them for work in private educational settings and support them in seeking state certification in their chosen specialization. However, because state accreditation requirements vary by state, graduates are encouraged to investigate the specific requirements for the state in which they plan to seek employment.
This degree program is highly structured; therefore, students should carefully follow the scheduling of the applicable four-year plan to avoid extending the time required for degree completion. Any alternative coursework must be approved by the Department Chair. All alternative coursework must closely align with Florida College course requirements in order to be considered for approval.
