NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University's mathematics education program has been ranked among the best in the nation in multiple categories, according to College Choice.

A website that rates accredited public and private institutions based on institutional reputation, graduation rates, selectivity and faculty resources, College Choice ranked the program fourth in most affordable and 12th in best online.

"The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is honored by this recognition," said Dr. Lesa Beverly, professor and chair of the department. "We have always been dedicated to preparing strong mathematics educators. The online program is our latest venture in this direction, designed specifically to accommodate the schedule of working students who have the goal of becoming highly qualified mathematics teachers."

The department offers both a bachelor's in mathematics with a secondary education minor and an online master's in school mathematics teaching.

"Because the capacity of mathematics teachers is well below the level of need, we must find innovative ways to provide opportunities for interested students," Beverly said. "The fact that our online mathematics program is a national exemplar is extremely exciting."
