Mathematics, Graduate Certificate

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

Matriculation Requirements:    
  1. Application for admission to the program.
  2. Bachelor's degree required, Mathematics Endorsement 4, from an accredited institution.
Discipline Core Requirements:   18 Credits
Complete Six of the following courses for a total of 18 credits 18
  MATH 6100 Topics in Geometry and Topology (3.0)  
  MATH 6310 Modern Algebra (3)  
  MATH 6350 Introduction to Combinatorics (3)  
  MATH 6410 Topics in Ordinary Differential Equations (3.0)  
  MATH 6610 Numerical Methods and Modeling (3.0)  
  MATH 6620 Topics in Numerical Analysis (3.0)  
  STAT 6010 Theory of Statistics (3.0)  
  or other approved courses  

Graduation Requirements:

  1. Completion of a minimum of 18 credits.
  2. Overall grade point average of 3.0 (B) or above.
  3. Residency hours -- minimum of 12 credit hours through course attendance at UVU.
  4. Courses and project requirements must be finished within a five-year period. No courses will apply toward graduation
    which are older than five years.

Graduation Plan

This graduation plan is a sample plan and is intended to be a guide. Your specific plan may differ based on your Math and English placement and/or transfer credits applied. You are encouraged to meet with an advisor and set up an individualized graduation plan in Wolverine Track
