Our mission at the Master's level is to prepare Master's Degree-seeking students for positions of instructional leadership in Mathematics Education as master teachers of mathematics in either middle grades (6-9), high school (9-12) or post-secondary institutions such as community colleges.
A strong emphasis on pedagogical content knowledge, disciplinary content knowledge and technological innovation in improving schooling is a defining characteristic of our graduate programs. Graduate students take their minor courses in the Departments of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, and occasionally Operations Research. Special Requirements for Graduate Enrollment.
Master of Arts (MAT) program pursuing 9-12 licensure take many classes within our department; however their program is administered through the MAT office.
Through the master’s program, students will further develop their instructional expertise, extend their knowledge of learners, deepen their subject matter knowledge, use educational research methods and engage in professional leadership activities. In particular, they will develop:
Application Deadlines for Mathematics Education MEd, MS and PhD Programs
The Mathematics Education Graduate Program reviews applications twice a year. Listed below are the following deadlines for receiving completed applications for admission for various terms:
**Priority Deadline for International Students: October 1
*Applicants accepted for Summer or Fall admission in October of the prior year may receive funding priorities for fellowships and assistantships.
**Because of the amount of paperwork needed for entering international graduate students, applications from international students should be complete (including submission of GRE and TOEFL scores) for the October 1 review. Those that are complete for the February 1 review are not guaranteed to be processed in time for Fall admissions.
