Mathematics Education

The CAGS in Mathematics provides advanced study for candidates who hold a license and a master’s degree and wish to further broaden their understanding of mathematics and mathematics education. You will expand your academic content base and teaching talents by becoming informed about the latest research, curricula, methodologies, and theories in mathematics education.

In the MMT program, you may earn a professional license for classroom teaching if you have the appropriate preliminary experience and hold an initial licensure. The professional license also requires a supervised mentored experience.

Teachers on sabbatical leave and from school systems with special needs are encouraged to inquire about specially designed sequences.
