Associate in Math Education DTA/MRP

Degree Requirements

The Associate in Math Education degree is designed as a Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA)/Major Related Program (MRP) for transfer with junior standing to baccalaureate institutions. It was created for students interested in careers as secondary math teachers. Successful completion of this degree satisfies lower- division general education and math and science requirements at Washington’s teacher certification institutions. Future high school teachers must pursue a major in mathematics and qualify for admission to a school of education when they transfer to their chosen teacher certification institution. Students should check specific requirements of their intended transfer school.

To qualify for an Associate in Math Education degree you must complete a minimum of 90 credits in courses numbered 100 or above, with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better.
