The M.S. in Mathematics (Secondary Education Concentration) prepares students to successfully teach mathematics in secondary or high schools. It is designed for teachers who wish to improve their level of competence in mathematics, to serve as Secondary School Mathematics Specialists, or to be teachers of secondary or high school mathematics.

Is this for me?

The program is for people (1) who are currently teaching mathematics in the secondary schools, (2) who plan to teach mathematics in the secondary schools, or (3) who wish to switch careers and would like to obtain the M.S. in Mathematics while completing the requirements for secondary school teacher certification.


Graduates would find employment as mathematics teachers in public and private secondary schools or pursue a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education at another institution.
