If you are majoring in math, biology, chemistry, physics or earth science, FIUteach prepares you to earn a secondary teacher certification (grades 6-12) without adding time or expense to your degree. FIUteach is part of the nationally acclaimed UTeach model that creates a pipeline of highly-skilled individuals who will both inspire and challenge students to become the math and science leaders of tomorrow.  Try it for free!* Make sure to sign up for SMT 2661 or SMT 2044.

*Students are reimbursed the cost of in-state tuition credits upon successful completion at the end of the term.
