M.S. in Mathematics Education

Our Master's program in Mathematics Education (grades 7-12) prepares teachers for teaching diverse students in 21st century classrooms. This 30-38 credit program aligns with the professional standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the New York State Teaching and Learning Standards. From experiences in university classrooms, online, and in schools and communities, you will learn to design inclusive, culturally relevant pedagogy for all students. The program graduates new professionals who are ready to teach mathematical practices, along with concepts and procedures. Whether working in classrooms or in the community, our graduates understand the key role that mathematics educators play in developing mathematical literacy across the curriculum and for life purposes that extend beyond school.

The program is designed to be completed full-time in a single calendar year, beginning in May.
