The first two programs listed below are part of the Master of Arts program in the College of Education's School of Teacher Education. Faculty members involved with all three masters programs are also members of CRMSE.
K-8 Mathematics Education
Program overview: We seek elementary teachers or middle school teachers of mathematics who
are interested in exploring how to teach and learn mathematics more
effectively. You do not need to be a math whiz to join the program. You
do, however, need to have an interest in furthering your knowledge of
the mathematical ideas in the K-8 curriculum, how children think about
mathematics, how math instruction can empower all children rather than
an elite few, and how research can improve instruction. The program
consists of 30 units of coursework. For more information on the K-8 Math Education program, click here.
K-12 Science Education
Program overview: The program is designed to support the professional development of K-12
teachers who want to improve their science instruction. The program
consists of 30 units of coursework, offered during four semesters and
one summer session. Courses will be taught two days per week in the late
afternoon or evening. The program begins in the fall of even-numbered years. For more information on the K-12 Science Education program, click here.
Master of Arts in Teaching Service (MATS)
Offered through the Mathematics Education division of the Department of Mathematics, the Master of Arts in Teaching Service (MATS) program offers two specializations: community college teaching and secondary school teaching. The community college specialization
is designed for students with strong undergraduate preparation in
mathematics and may be used to satisfy the requirements for teaching at
the community college level. The secondary school specialization is designed to strengthen the mathematical background of secondary
teachers, while providing course work to better understand the learning
and teaching of mathematics in grades 7-12. For more information, visit the MATS program website.
