BACHELORS DEGREE | MATH EDUCATION

Degree Overview

Maranatha's Mathematics Education program trains you to sharpen and develop your math abilities for use in a teaching ministry. Learn to open students' eyes to the practical side of math: measuring scientific data, determining medicinal drug dosages, and interpreting political, economic, and even sports statistics. With such an acute shortage of math teachers in America, a degree in Math Education ensures a promising teaching career and allows you to pursue graduate work in other disciplines, such as science or medicine.
