The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Mathematics prepares secondary teachers for positions of instructional leadership as master teachers of mathematics.  The program extends the professional competence of secondary mathematics teachers through an in-depth study of mathematics and mathematics teaching and learning.  The program, which is a collaborative effort between the College of Education and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, is designed to provide opportunities for mathematics teachers to deepen their understanding of mathematics by learning advanced mathematical topics in relation to the mathematics they actually teach.  The program content is consistent with the recommendations of the Mathematical Education of Teachers report of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences.

Prospective Students

The low-cost M.Ed. in Mathematics is offered completely online through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous courses.  The program provides graduates with opportunities for exciting career advances.  For example, many program graduates go on to teach advanced secondary mathematics courses (e.g., Dual Enrollment courses) or college mathematics courses. 

While the program is designed for practicing secondary teachers of mathematics, this is not a requirement for admission.  Anyone with interest in deepening their understanding of mathematics and exploring current educational theories and practices is encouraged to apply, including international students.  Please note: this program does NOT lead to initial licensure.

Visit the Prospective Students page for more details and information about what makes this such a great program.

Current Students

M.Ed. in Mathematics students form a community of scholars working together to make connections between advanced mathematics and secondary mathematics as well as better understand and improve their teaching practices.
