Intended to prepare students to teach mathematics at the secondary level. Coursework will include the basic foundations of mathematics as well as theory and research related to learning of mathematics, with attention to significant human mental development factors.

Eastern Wyoming College maintains articulation agreements with several regional four-year institutions. Students should consult and work closely with their academic advisor to ensure successful transfer with these institutions. While transfer institutions are similar in most instances, each institution has unique degree requirements that only academic advisors may be aware of. It is in the student’s best interest to work with an advisor who can help facilitate the transfer process.

Notice of background check: All education students are subject to background checks for selected educational coursework involving student contact and future employment as professionals in education and related fields. Student financial aid may be used to cover the cost.

Students planning to transfer to the University of Wyoming should take EDFD 2450 Lifespan Human Development.

Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a grade of “C” or better.
