Early Start Program in Mathematics

For B. A. Mathematics majors who want to be Secondary Mathematics Teachers

The Early Start Program offers qualified students a way to combine the B. A. in Mathematics with an M. A. T. in Secondary Education. Students who qualify may take up to 9 hours of their M. A. T. coursework as electives toward the B. A. in Mathematics, thereby reducing the total credit hour requirements for the two degrees by up to 9 hours.

  • To qualify for acceptance into the program a student must have completed 21 credit hours of the Mathematics course requirements for the B. A. in Mathematics with a 3.0 GPA in those courses.
  • Interested students should contact Dr. Seif to have their qualification verified.  (Office: NS 116; email: swseif01@louisville.eduThis process should be begun as soon as possible. Students who meet the qualifications above still need to complete a teacher education application packet and meet other requirements for admission to the College of Education and Human Development before they can register for the M. A. T. courses.
