The Associate in Math Education DTA/MRP is designed for students who want to become secondary math teachers. The courses offered within this focus meet the lower division requirements of Washington state four–year institutions. Students are encouraged to work closely with a faculty advisor in selecting, planning and completing educational goals, and should coordinate with the institution to which they intend to transfer.
Minimum of 90 earned credits in courses numbered 100 or above is required to complete the AA-DTA degree. The 90 credits must include at least 60 Core Requirement credits, 15 General Transferable Elective (GTE) credits, and 15 General Elective credits.
Requires a 1.5 grade or higher. Credits selected must be from at least two disciplines. PSYC& 200 strongly recommended. At least one course in another area other than psychology. Select a multicultural elective by advisement.
Requires a 1.5 grade or higher. No more than ten credits allowed from any one discipline. At least ten credits in physical, biological and/or earth sciences (i.e., physics, chemistry, geology or biology). Must include one lab indicated by Ⓛ.
Minimum grade of 1.0 is required. Additional college-level courses so that total earned is at least 90 credits. May include prerequisites for major courses (e.g., precalculus), additional major coursework, or specific general education or other university requirements, as approved by the advisor. A maximum of three physical activity (PE) credits can be applied to this degree.
Students completing this degree will receive the same priority consideration for admission to the baccalaureate institution as they would by completing the direct transfer associate degree and will be given junior status by the receiving institution.
Courses in humanities/social science must come from the current ICRC distribution list in order to count as General Education or General University Requirements (GERs/GURs) at the receiving institution. Additional general educational, cultural diversity and foreign language requirements, as required by the transfer institution, must be met prior to the completion of a baccalaureate degree.
Students should be advised that some baccalaureate institutions require physics with calculus to meet specific pre-major science category.
Students are responsible for checking specific major requirements of baccalaureate institutions in the year prior to transferring.
