### 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.edu)

A. T. courses.
