The Ed.M. program with (K-12) teacher certification in mathematics education is designed for individuals who possess a bachelor’s degree in mathematics or another technical field and who wish to pursue certification and a master’s degree in education at the same time. Certificates are recommended only in conjunction with the completion of the requirements for the Ed.M. degree.

The program has three major goals:

  • to acquaint students with the historical development of mathematics education and a variety of perspectives on current issues
  • to acquaint students with the psychology of learning mathematics and how individual differences among children with respect to academic ability and social, economic, and cultural backgrounds may influence learning
  • to expand the mathematics background of students, to acquaint them with a variety of methods for teaching mathematics, and to provide them with practical experiences in creating effective classroom environments for children learning mathematics


Applications can be completed online. Applications are due by February 1 for the fall term. Students are admitted only once a year to the postbaccalaureate program.

Program Requirements

In order to earn the master's degree, individuals must successfully complete the required course sequence, provide proof of satisfaction of the general education requirements and liberal arts credits, and pass the portfolio.

Accepted students will have 5 years to complete the program, from the beginning of any course work to be counted toward the program.

A complete listing of degree requirements are available for download or at the Office of Student and Academic Services.
