Requirements

The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics aims to improve mathematics education and student achievement by focusing on two specific research-supported areas. First, by delivering high-quality content-based knowledge critical to student achievement, and second, by targeting in-service teachers who desire to teach dual credit in high school, given that dual-credit/dual-enrollment students are more likely to persist in college and are more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree in less time than those who did not attempt college credits in high school. Graduate courses for this program will be available to match in-service teacher’s schedules—evenings and during summer sessions—taught on the main campus and live-interactive by Utah Valley University’s full-time faculty. 

Total Program Credits: 18
