Integrated Mathematics Education

This major combines our exceptional math and education programs and prepares students to become excellent secondary math teachers. Students are mentored in their academic preparation by highly respected educators and gain hands-on experience in the classroom.

After all, Ashland University offers not only an exceptional math program, but also an educational program that is recognized throughout the country as one of the leading teacher preparation programs in Ohio. When you undertake an integrated mathematics education major you can expect to spend approximately half of your study in the field of mathematics and half learning the art of classroom teaching. You get into the classroom as early as your freshman year to observe and assist, and become more involved each year, ultimately undertaking your student teaching experience your senior year. When you graduate, you will be ready to confidently and competently bring mathematics to life for the next generation of students.
