M.S.Ed. in Secondary Education – Mathematics Education Track

This Master's program is designed for teachers at the middle and high school levels.

If you’re an experienced teacher, this degree will improve your skills while preparing you to become a supervising teacher or department chair.

If you’re new to teaching, this degree can include teacher certification as part of your degree requirements.

Students planning to earn teacher certification may choose to participate in the Community of Teachers program or in the Secondary Transition to Teaching program.

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.
