Overview

These tables reflect what a standard course rotation may look like for a student pursuing the M.A. in Education 3+2 with a B.S. in Math at Western. Students in this program will take a different set of classes their fifth year depending on their chosen emphasis. Please note that a student’s individual path may vary somewhat from these projected course rotations, but it is up to the student to meet with their academic advisor to make sure they will complete all the credits they need to graduate within five years.
