Job Outlook

Our faculty have extensive contacts in the field that lead to information about job openings, and our graduates continually call for recommendations to fill vacancies. Student-teaching placements often lead to full-time employment after graduation.

As the demand grows for increased student proficiency in mathematics, job prospects for secondary-school mathematics teachers are excellent. Retirement patterns also promise that the demand for mathematics teachers will be become even stronger.

NYU Steinhardt's BS in Teaching Mathematics prepares you for teaching mathematics to students in Grades 7-12. To qualify for provisional or initial certification in New York and most other states, you take the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations after graduation. While teaching, many of our graduates pursue a master's degree that enables them to become mathematics specialists in a school district, managers of mathematics programs, and assistant principals in charge of mathematics curricula.

Examples of mathematics teaching positions in New York obtained by our graduates include:

  • Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics

Other graduates have put their mathematics and teaching skills to use in business, science, and government agencies.
