Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Mathematics Education
The Master of Education (M.Ed.) program is a 36 credit-hour program designed for teachers, preservice teachers, and educational professionals seeking to enhance instruction and leadership skills in mathematics education. Graduate students develop the knowledge and skills to work with children, adolescents, and families in a variety of educational settings and to enhance their pedagogical and research abilities.
Within an intimate classroom environment, professors aim to enhance students’ practice in mathematics education through rigorous, personal, and supportive instruction. Fifteen of the program’s 36 credit hours in the Mathematics Education Specialization are mathematics education graduate coursework. The program offers graduate students two areas of emphasis: (1) Teaching and Learning or (2) Research. View Program Brochure
Note: This program does not meet the requirements for mathematics teacher certification.
“The Mathematics Education Master’s program greatly prepared me for my current position. I am teaching 2nd grade, and I have a whole new perspective on student thinking. I was able to really dig into student thinking and processes.”
