Graduate Certificate in Mathematics

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 offered as evening classes and during summer sessions to match in-service teacher’s schedules and will be taught on the main campus and live-interactive by Utah Valley University’s full-time graduate faculty. 

Scholarship Information 

Students can receive a scholarship in the form of reimbursement for the graduate-level courses in Mathematics. The students first need to pay the course fees. The reimbursement will be processed within a few weeks after the start of the semester. The scholarship will also cover the cost of the textbooks.  Please contact Christine Walker for information about the scholarship at christine.walker@uvu.edu.  The courses that receive a scholarship are any Mathematics courses at the level of MATH 6000 or above. Once the students are registered for the courses, they should contact Christine Walker so that she can process the scholarship.

Eligibility
Students with a bachelor degree in mathematics or mathematics education are eligible to apply. Teachers with a level 4 endorsement in mathematics are eligible for tuition waiver.

The Qualifying Exam:
Following admission to the graduate program, every student will be required to pass the qualifying exam before taking the core courses. This exam will be given at the beginning of every Fall semester.  

Preparation for the Qualifying Exam:
A refresher course will be offered to prepare the students for the qualifying exam and the core courses in the program. The refresher course MATH 6000 will run every summer.  Students will consolidate their knowledge on topics from undergraduate mathematics such as calculus, real analysis, abstract algebra, geometry, and topology.

MATH 6000 is offered as an independednt study course during Fall 2021. Students will be able to get help from the insructors after they sign up for the course.
