Online Secondary Math Education Degree


Would you like to become a High School math teacher?

Do you need the convenience of online courses?

Consider Midway University’s online Secondary Math Education program.

At Midway University, you can earn your secondary education degree and become a math teacher through our secondary math education major. Midway’s online program is in an accelerated format and is designed to help you meet the requirements to be an English teacher while learning the skills and knowledge you need to teach students in grades 8-12.

While core curriculum develops your general knowledge in the areas of critical thinking, literacy, mathematics, natural sciences, art and humanities, and the social sciences; elective coursework explores the arts of language and literature in depth. Upon completion of this secondary teacher education program, you will be ready to seek certification to be a teacher in Kentucky. Students wishing to seek certification in other states should contact that state’s teacher certification granting agency for information on specific requirements.

Once students have met admissions requirements and are accepted into Midway University, they then will need to apply for acceptance into the Teacher Education program.

If you plan to teach outside the U.S. or don’t need teaching certification you may consider our Education Studies degree.

*Online students should consult with their advisors as all areas of concentration might not be available online.

How much will it cost?

Midway University works hard to provide quality degree programs at an affordable price for our students. Our online and evening undergraduate and graduate programs’ tuition is based on the number of credit hours taken each module. You can review our current credit hour tuition rates and fees online.

Make sure you get the whole picture before making your decision. First, complete your FAFSA so you can see what financial aid you are eligible to receive and complete your application. Once you are admitted to Midway University, you can meet with our Financial Aid Office to discuss all the eligible aid (federal, state and institutional) that you have access to. This is the only way to figure out the true cost and if you will have any out-of-pocket expenses to cover. We also have specific resource information for military students.

Midway University accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher with a grade of “C” or better.  At the time of admission, our Admissions Counselors will provide an unofficial evaluation of your transfer credit.  An official evaluation will be completed by the Registrar’s Office after acceptance.
