Program Details

The M.A. in Teaching, Mathematics (5–9 or 5–12) is a great way for individuals who already hold a bachelor’s degree—preferably in a math-intensive field such as math, engineering, or science—to become certified middle school and high school mathematics teachers and earn their master’s degree at the same time.

This challenging program provides you with the essential skills and knowledge you need in effective teaching practices and foundations of teaching to become an effective math teacher. At the same time, the program incorporates additional elements necessary to earn a master’s degree. As part of this program, you will also complete a supervised student teaching component designed to give you invaluable in-classroom experience.
