Mathematics secondary teaching is for a person who enjoys mathematical inquiry and social engagement—and wants to share that enthusiasm with high school students. Our program is built off the expertise and experiences of our highly esteemed professors. CWU provides an excellent environment to prepare you for a rewarding and successful career in teaching secondary mathematics.


Academically talented students majoring in a STEM discipline (which includes math) have an opportunity to apply for a two-year SOLVER scholarship totaling $20,000. The scholarship is funded by a National Science Foundation grant and is meant to help promising students through the last, most difficult years of their degree programs. 

Why this program 

Graduates of CWU’s mathematics secondary teaching program are highly sought after. According to the Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, there is a serious shortage of mathematics and science teachers in the state.
