Mathematics Secondary Education

to B.A. in Mathematical Sciences

An opportunity to gain an associate degree from Delaware Tech and a bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware.


Delaware Tech has established agreements with four-year colleges and universities that connect Delaware Tech associate degree programs with bachelor's degree programs to create smooth transfer opportunities for you. These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.


Delaware Tech's associate degree program in Mathematics Secondary Education offers a curriculum that has rigorous preparation in mathematics and develops competencies in proven instructional strategies. The student will be prepared to transfer to a bachelor's degree program that leads to a teaching career in middle or high school mathematics, or those who are not interested in pursuing a teaching career may transfer to a baccalaureate program in Mathematical Sciences.

The University of Delaware's Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics is designed for those students who wish to follow a broad course of study. It joins a broad-based liberal arts education with the major in mathematics. Students are prepared to join the work force in business, industry or government in areas that need strong analytical and quantitative skills or for graduate work in the mathematical sciences or related areas.


By completing your associate degree at Delaware Tech, you'll receive excellent instruction in small classes at a campus close to home. Delaware Tech's affordable tuition can reduce the overall cost of your college education, making the completion of your bachelor's degree more manageable.


Refer to the Connected Degree curriculum (on the reverse side of this page) for the sequence of courses needed to complete this program. Call Delaware Tech and let us help you follow the path to your bachelor's degree.

+It is recommended that students take SPA 137 and SPA 138 as post-associate degree courses in the third and fourth semesters at DTCC; otherwise, students must complete their language requirements at UD.

^New courses to be developed

^^To satisfy the math elective requirement, students may also take MAT 291 Ordinary Differential Equations as a post-associated degree course to transfer for UD's MATH 302 Ordinary Differential Equations.

*Students should check with their UD advisor for group requirements and choices. Choose one course to satisfy the multicultural requirement.

^^Credits remaining are based on courses taken at DTCC. Students who take MAT 291 at DTCC may transfer the course for MATH 302.

The Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Delaware requires a minimum of 124 credits, at least 79 of which must be outside of Mathematics.
Course sequencing may vary by semester. See your advisor.
RDG 120, Critical Reading and Thinking, is a required DTCC course unless the student is exempt.
Initial placement and total credits required in foreign language depend on years of that language taken in high school; maximum of 12 credits required if student must start with 105 level.
