Teaching Certificates and Endorsements
A teaching certificate is the credential that allows a person to teach in a particular state. It is a license to perform certain duties within a particular educational system. An endorsement specifies which subjects and at what levels a person holding a certificate may teach. The requirements for an endorsement can be fullfilled: (1) as part of a specific degree program at a university, or (2) after graduation, by successfully completing specific courses approved by the state. If a student wishes to satisfy the endorsement requirements as part of a university education, he/she must complete a specific degree-granting program of the university. The state, in this case, certifies entire programs, not individual courses. If a person has completed a university degree in another subject (such as Secondary English Teaching) and received a teaching certificate, he/she can seek additional endorsements by successfully completing specific courses approved by the state.

At BYU, a BS degree in Mathematics Education results in a level 4 endorsement. A minor in Mathematics Education results in a level 3 endorsement.
