Master of Arts in Teaching:
Focus on K-12 Mathematics and Science Teaching

Offered through the School of Teacher Education, we seek K-12 teachers who are interested in exploring how to teach math and science more effectively. You do not need to be a math or science expert to join the program. You do, however, need to have an interest in furthering your knowledge of math and science ideas in the K-12 curriculum; of how children think about math and science; of how math and science instruction can empower all children rather than an elite few; and of how research can improve instruction. Prerequisites include a teaching credential. Coursework includes the opportunity to add on credentials in secondary mathematics and science teaching.

Master of Arts in Teaching Service (MATS):
Community College or Secondary Mathematics Teaching

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.
