Mathematics for Secondary Teachers

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Mathematics for Secondary Teachers is a three-year program offered in the evening and summer and can be completed in its entirety at Kent State Stark.

Designed collaboratively by faculty in mathematical sciences and teacher education, the program is for in-service high school teachers seeking a master's degree in math. This program does not lead to teacher certification.

Your graduate program will be designed by an advisory committee, consisting of members of the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Teaching, Learning & Curriculum Studies. Through an initial interview, the advisory committee will help you clarify your educational objectives and will formulate a graduate program that reflects a balance among your professional needs, academic training and related outside interests.



Courses are offered at the Stark Campus by the following methods:

  • Traditional: Class meets once per week in the evenings, usually 4:25 - 7:05 p.m.
  • Online: Course material is delivered online with three, in-person meetings during the semester.
  • Hybrid: Course material is delivered online and the class meets in-person every other week.
