Master of Art in Subject Matter Teaching - Mathematics

The M.A. in Subject Matter Teaching-Mathematics provides teachers
of high school mathematics the opportunity to acquire a more extensive
and more secure mathematical background. By reading research and
participating in seminars, the program also develops an awareness of
relevant and current educational theory. Graduates are able to assume
professional leadership roles.

Additional Admission Requirements

In addition to the minimum requirements of the University, students must
have an undergraduate background in Abstract Algebra, Geometry, and
Calculus III. If not, up to 6 S.H. of upper level undergraduate
course work may also be required.

Graduation Requirements

In addition to the completion of course requirements, students must pass
a comprehensive examination mathematics education given by
the Department of Mathematics. A thesis will be written in
Problems in Math Education I & II (0833.600 and 0833.601).
