Course content

The Master of Science in Teaching degree in Mathematics is designed for individuals who are interested in teaching secondary mathematics; it is pursued as well by individuals who desire to teach college general-studies mathematics. Students strengthen their mathematics knowledge and understanding while they also explore teaching and learning approaches. Admission is open to licensed teachers as well as those seeking initial licensure. Those candidates seeking initial licensure must meet the mathematics major requirements, satisfy a professional education component, and meet discipline-related requirements. Master’s candidates may choose from two concentrations: teaching mathematics in either middle grades or secondary education. All students complete 36 hours, consisting of nine hours of required core courses, 15 hours of concentration, and 12 hours of cognate from the College of Education. Candidates must also successfully complete comprehensive examinations.

Two concentrations are offered under the Master of Science in Teaching (M.S.T.) in Mathematics: Middle Grade Mathematics and Secondary Mathematics.
A number of schools report facing a shortage of teachers in certain subject areas including mathematics, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. A Master of Science in Teaching degree can help those with a strong mathematics background change careers into teaching mathematics at schools or even community colleges. Classroom educators also study valuable instructional approaches to help advance their careers and increase student success. Tutoring, textbook/testing resources, and state educational curriculum positions are other occupational options with this degree.
