Education Math would grant you a teaching degree, so that you could teach math at the secondary level (middle school/junior high through high school). A regular math degree involves more math coursework and prepares you for math-related careers or graduate school; that is what you'd want to pursue if you want to be a professor.

Education - Math is if you want to teach math in elementary, middle, or high school (some degree are specific by grade level) while the normal Math Major is if you want to have a job related to math or become a professor. In this case, you want to be a professor so the regular Math major is for you.
