THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's Middle Level Mathematics Education (MLME) associate degree program is the first step towards a career in teaching middle school mathematics. This program will prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program in a four-year institution. The MLME program will provide rigorous math course work, integrated educational technology, and experiences in a middle school setting. Students who pursue this degree will major in math and have the option to enroll in one of three minor areas of study: science, social science or english. This pathway will enable graduates to obtain dual certification in mathematics and their minor field.

Wilmington University's Bachelor of Science degree program in Middle Level Education - (Grades 6-8) is nationally recognized by the National Middle School Association (NMSA) and by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Students who wish to teach at this level declare one area (math, science, english, or social science) as his/her major concentration along with an area of minor concentration. Graduates are prepared to become certified to teach at the middle school level.
