What Other Features Will You Find?

Modes of Delivery

Courses for this program are offered online or on our main campus in Muncie. You can also take a blend of these courses. You can complete the program 100 percent online. The majority of online courses are taught in an asynchronous format where you work on weekly assignments at the times and places most convenient to you. Some online courses are taught in fixed-time format meaning you will have weekly lectures that are webcast during specific evening hours.

Math education programs—particularly those in elementary education math—are few and far between in an online classroom.
