Associate in Math Education-DTA/MRP


The Associate in Math Education is intended to prepare students who aspire to be secondary math teachers. Students who complete this degree will have completed lower division general education requirements as well as the prerequisites for a major in math.

If you are not well prepared in high school mathematics, you should plan a three-year program at Centralia College in preparation for transfer to a four-year school. The main emphasis in the first year should be on strengthening your mathematics, basic sciences, communication, and reading skills.
