Math Education

If you want to a career that combines your math skills with teaching, this degree will get you started.

This pre-major program prepares you to transfer at a junior standing to a Washington four-year college or university, where you’ll finish the education and training to become a secondary math teacher. You’ll complete the first two years of work toward a bachelor’s degree, including calculus and education courses, as well as general education requirements.

With a degree in secondary math education, you could become certified to teach math to students in middle school or high school.

Exact totals may vary depending on the catalog requirements you are following, if you have transferred in courses, or if you have been granted substitutions.

Tuition, program fees, and course fees are for the current academic year, as approved by the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees. Tuition and fees are subject to change by the Washington State Legislature and/or the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees.

Resident tuition is what Washington residents pay. Non-Resident tuition is what out-of-state students pay. International tuition is what out-of-country students pay. For clarification on residency, see Determining your Residency Status.

Avg. Books & Supplies: $942 for an academic year.
The cost for books and course-related material is an estimate based on the Washington Financial Aid Association’s annual student budget. The actual cost of textbooks and course-related supplies can vary widely depending on your program of study and the options you have for obtaining textbooks and other course material.

Program Fees are one-time costs required for the program that are not included in course fees or in tuition. These fees include things like tools, equipment, and uniforms. Only a few programs have program fees.

Max. Course Fees cover the cost of special equipment and materials needed to complete coursework. These fees are not included in tuition. Not all courses have fees and the actual costs that a student pays will vary depending on the courses taken.

Institutional Fees cover a variety of services for students, such as class registration, technology support, health clinic services, bus passes, and more. Most of these fees are instituted after a vote by the student body.
