More About Our Program
The EdM in Mathematics Education includes a wide range of opportunities to develop your expertise in mathematics and in methods of teaching mathematics. You can use our program to satisfy professional licensure requirements. The program offers mathematics courses in the College of Arts and Sciences, including the PROMYS for Teachers program, a mathematical immersion experience during one summer.
Our program is highly flexible, tailored to meet your needs, interests, and background. You can complete the program in a manner that best suits your own schedule: one academic year of full-time study or over several years on a part-time basis while you teach in local schools. Primarily, you take courses in mathematics education, which emphasize connections between relevant K-12 content and research-based effective instructional strategies. You can also take courses in mathematics to deepen your content knowledge. Interested in taking courses to support your work with special education students or English language learners? You can do that too.
