Western faculties develop pathway to increase education students with mathematics specialization

November 11, 2021
Western University’s Faculty of Science’s School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences and its Faculty of Education have signed an agreement that will allow students in fields such as math and statistics to receive guaranteed admission into Western’s Bachelor of Education (BEd program). Students in mathematics, actuarial science, financial modeling, data science, and statistics will be accepted into Western’s intermediate/senior teaching stream with the goal of increasing graduates who are prepared to specialize in teaching mathematics. “We know that there is an enduring shortage of mathematics teachers and this pathway invites our exceptional mathematics and statistical sciences students to continue their academic preparation at Western,” said Western Education dean Donna Kotsopoulos.
