If you are interested in teaching Mathematics at the secondary level (6-12 grades) and want strong coursework and a rigorous supervised field experience in your content area, this program is for you! Beginning in Summer 2018 we will be offering an online program that leads to Florida Teacher Professional Certification at the post-baccalaureate level. This certificate program is an approved Florida Department of Education Educator Preparation Institute (EPI). Our program is:

This 18-credit certification program is fully approved by the Florida Department of Education and leads to eligibility for Professional Educator certification in Florida.
