Master of Mathematics for Teaching (MMT)

The Master of Mathematics for Teaching (MMT) program is designed for those within the mathematics teacher community who seek a content-rich experience of mathematics to strengthen their work in classrooms. The program prepares students for leadership roles in developing mathematics curriculum and teacher training. This degree leads to a professional teaching license in mathematics.

The courses, which emphasize depth over breadth, are designed around mathematics for teaching and current research in mathematics education.

The MMT program is specifically designed for candidates who hold an initial license for teaching mathematics and have taught a minimum of two years under that license.

The structure of the program, six-week summer sessions over the course of three summers and coursework as a part-time student over two academic years, is designed to work with a teacher’s teaching schedule.
