There is no official mathematics track for the elementary education master’s degree, but you can work with a faculty advisor in our department if you wish to make elementary-level mathematics your area of concentration.

The 36-credit hour program focuses on innovative educational practices and can include coursework in graduate-level mathematics if desired. A thesis or practicum option is available for students who plan to eventually pursue a doctoral degree.
