With new regulations from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), high school teachers who want to teach dual-credit mathematics classes are required to hold a master’s degree in mathematics or another discipline, such as education, plus 18 credit hours of graduate coursework in a specific discipline.

The stackable structure of the MAT in Mathematics is ideal for those who want to teach dual-credit courses and who need to meet Higher Learning Commission dual-credit qualification standards. If you need both discipline-specific coursework and a master's degree, the MAT in Mathematics meets HLC standards. If you already hold a master's degree in a discipline other than mathematics, you can meet HLC standards by completing the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics.
