Bethany adds teaching licensure in mathematics

Thursday, February 16, 2017

Bethany Lutheran College continues to expand its program offerings with the addition of a secondary teaching licensure in mathematics. A joint endeavor of the Education and Math Departments, the College recently received final approval for the licensure from the Minnesota Board of Teaching. Dr. Carrie Pfeifer (Education) and Prof. Laura Buch (Mathematics) led the effort to achieve the new licensure. 

Pfeifer explained the impetus for the math licensure approval. 

“There has always been great interest from Bethany students for a program in math education licensure, but the completion of paperwork and state requirements requires considerable work. We’re pleased that this team effort has led to another new program at Bethany with State of Minnesota approval.”

She continued, “The addition of this program is just the beginning of several efforts to create more opportunities for students to teach in an area they have a passion for. And with these new programs, more students will certainly see Bethany Lutheran College as an option for their college training.”
