Master of Science in Mathematics Education Program
The mission of the Master of Science in Mathematics Education Program is to provide rigorous, integrated coursework to prepare highly qualified Mathematics teachers who can demonstrate proficiency in mathematics content and pedagogy; intellectual rigor; and both compassion and high expectations for Grades 5-12 students' mathematical skills, understanding, and appreciation.
M.S. IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION LEADING TO INITIAL CERTIFICATION
The Master of Science in Mathematics Education Program (Initial Certification) provides a comprehensive array of coursework that equally balances instruction in Mathematics content areas, evidence-based practices and instructional techniques, and classroom management strategies. The program also ensures that students have a strong knowledge base with respect to integrating theory with practice, student assessment, teacher accountability, data driven decision-making, and resources that Mathematics teachers need in order to be effective. Additionally, coursework provides students with a strong quantitative background and training in emerging technologies essential for enhancing critical thinking skills among Middle and Secondary students.
M.S. IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION LEADING TO PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION
The Mathematics Education Program (Professional Certification) is for individuals already holding Initial New York State Teacher Certification in Adolescent Mathematics, or who have already satisfied all the requirements for such certification, but who still need a related Masters Degree. This is a 30 credit program offering a combination of advanced mathematics content and advanced courses in mathematics pedagogy. Any applicant who does not already satisfy the requirement of a 3 credit course that addresses the specific elements listed regarding students with disabilities (SWD) will be required to take, in addition to all the other courses in the program, the course MTHE 602: Teaching Mathematics to Students with Special Needs.
