Major requirements total 87 hours. This includes 32 hours of required mathematics courses, 3 hours of mathematics electives, 8 hours of supporting courses, and 44 hours of professional education courses. Up to 8 hours count for general education requirements. You’ll take interesting courses like:

  • Mathematical Statistics
  • Classroom Management
  • Modern Algebra

See Required Courses



Knowledge of mathematical theorems, critical problem-solving, and classroom management is useless without the opportunity to put it into action. During your time here at Trinity, you will have the chance to engage in classroom observation, lesson planning, and student teaching at some of the top local middle and high schools, or even abroad.

As a Mathematics with Secondary Education Licensure major, you will complete over 100 hours of field experience prior to student teaching. As part of your coursework, you will gain experience in both middle school and high school classes in a variety of diverse settings.
