The Department of Mathematics prepares students for certification in Mathematics (Grades 4-8) or Mathematics (Grade 7-12). The state standards are incorporated into the required curriculum. Students are introduced to the theory and application of mathematical concepts. Students who graduate with this certification preparation will have the knowledge and skill to set up and solve problems, will be able to use computers in support of mathematics problem-solving, be able to communicate clearly mathematical ideas and results, and have an appreciation of the place of mathematics in the culture.

The Mathematics Department at Hardin-Simmons also offers a Master of Science in Mathematics that can be obtained from anywhere a student has internet access while remaining employed full-time. This degree is modeled so that a full-time high school teacher could earn it without needing to quit work. It takes three calendar years and one semester to complete.

Accredited Program

The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) and Texas Education Agency (TEA) Office of Accountability has awarded Hardin-Simmons University Teacher Education Program a rating of “Accredited” under the Accountability System for Educator Preparation authorized by Texas Education Code 21.045 every year since the rating of teacher preparation entities has been awarded.

Programs must achieve a minimum pass rate on the tests by disaggregated subgroups (All, Male, Female, White, Hispanic, African American, Other) to receive a rating of “Accredited.”
