Math Education (5-Adult)


Students receiving a B.A. in Math Education may also earn a B.S. in Mathematics by taking only two additional courses!


It is expected that students entering the 5-Adult program are ready to take Calculus I. Students without this background may be required to complete appropriate lower-level courses in addition to the stated requirements. Students should consult with their advisor concerning credit for prerequisites and/or special examinations for course credit.
