M.Ed. Mathematics Education
The Master of Education degree is offered through Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Mathematics Education.
The program requires a minimum of 32 graduate credit hours to complete. The M.Ed. provides a series of opportunities to improve one’s understanding of research and theory on mathematics education as it applies to the teaching and learning of mathematics.
Beginning in 2018, the Master of Education in Early Childhood program will offer a concentration in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) - more information coming soon to the Early Childhood Education page.
A listing of mathematics education courses for the Curriculum & Instruction M.Ed. program is provided below. For up-to-date information on current course offerings, please consult your advisor.
