Major requirements total 69 hours. This includes 44 hours of required Professional Education courses and 25 hours of Mathematics courses. You’ll take interesting courses such as:
- Professional Skills for Teachers
- Reading and Writing Across the Curriculum
- Calculus and Analytic Geometry
Take a quick moment to send us a bit about yourself and we’ll send you some info about Trinity.
CAREERS & INTERNSHIPS
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 local middle schools.
