The MS-MEd Degree

The Master of Science in Mathematics Education (MS-MEd) degree is intended for licensed teachers with a level 4 endorsement or Secondary Mathematics Endorsement and at least two years of teaching experience, and/or students who have earned a master's degree in a discipline other than mathematics, but who lack the minimum 18-credit mathematics graduate credit hours to earn a Graduate Certificate in Mathematics.

Program Vision

The MS-MEd program 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.

Teachers with the Mathematics Endorsement 4 or Secondary Mathematics Endorsement are eligible for tuition reimbursement.

Course Delivery

The graduate courses will be offered in the evenings and during summer sessions to accommodate teachers’ schedules. Evening courses, primarily during the fall and spring semesters, will be offered 1-2 nights a week depending on the discipline. The mathematics courses will be offered one night a week, and the education courses could be two nights a week, with a mixture of online and hybrid.
