Master of Education in Mathematics

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Mathematics at James Madison University is an online program that 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 M.Ed. program is a collaborative effort between the College of Education and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The program 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 mathematics courses in the M.Ed. program are taught by Graduate Faculty Members in the JMU Department of Mathematics & Statistics, including Elizabeth Arnold, Stephen Lucas, and Dinesh Sharma.  The program content is consistent with the recommendations of the Mathematical Education of Teachers report of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences. For more information about the M.Ed. in Mathematics, please contact the Program Director, Dr. Alexis Stevens.
