Mathematics Education

Launch your career with a B.A. from Trinity

If you are fascinated by numbers, and want to share your interests and skills with students, a B.A. in mathematics education from Trinity may be for you.

With a degree from Trinity, you will be prepared to enter the classroom believing that all children can learn; understanding students of diverse populations and abilities; and meeting the demands of increasingly rigorous, standards-based education.

While at Trinity, your hands-on classroom experience includes:

  • 200 hours of field experience (teacher aiding)
  • 90 additional hours of novice teaching (pre-student teaching)
  • A 16-week student teaching internship

Trinity is located just 25 miles from downtown Chicago, so your field experience, novice teaching, and internships can take place in a variety of classroom settings: urban and suburban, domestic and international, multicultural, special education, middle grades, public and private. Some of our students extend their experience much further and do student teaching and field experience around the country and around the world.

Mathematics education majors are eligible for the Illinois Professional Educator License with an endorsement in mathematics at the secondary (9-12) level.
