# Bachelor of Arts in Teaching Mathematics

The Bachelor of Arts in teaching mathematics prepares students to become teachers of mathematics at the AYA (adolescent and young adult) level. As a teaching mathematics major, you’ll develop advanced knowledge in mathematics concepts and application and receive a solid foundation in educational methods, learning and development, and instructional technologies. You also will gain valuable professional experience both through observing and teaching in AYA classrooms.
