Acadia offers an integrated BSc/BEd program through the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in cooperation with the School of Education. The program is five years in duration and is intended for undergraduate students who decide early in their academic program that they wish to pursue teaching. If this appeals to you, then you need to apply to the program during your first year of study at Acadia. You will be admitted to the integrated program on successful completion of Year 1. Your qualifications are reviewed on completion of Year 3, and continuation in the BEd portion of the program will be contingent on this review.

In addition to varied roles in academia, many rewarding math careers can be found in teaching. Numeracy is always a high priority within primary and secondary education systems, making math graduates with an interest in teaching highly sought after. As a mathematics graduate you will be sought after by employers in many sectors as you will be perceived as having proven intellectual rigour, strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and an ability to tackle complex problems.
