Certificate of Graduate Studies in Secondary Mathematics
The Certificate of Graduate Studies (COGS) in Secondary Mathematics will provide an opportunity for mathematics teachers to pursue advanced study in both mathematics and mathematics education. Goals will include: increasing teachers’ mathematics content knowledge, increasing teachers’ pedagogical knowledge, and increasing teachers’ familiarity with current and historical research in mathematics education.
The applicant for the COGS in secondary mathematics will be expected to have completed a minimum of 30 semester hours at the undergraduate level of mathematics (or have a secondary mathematics teaching certificate). Enrollment in all COGS require eligibility for graduate study (ie.: attainment of a bachelor’s degree). Matriculation must take place by the completion of 6 semester hours.
Students will complete a minimum of 15 semester hours of graduate credits in classes taught both by the College of Liberal Arts & Science’s Mathematics Department (9 semester hours) and the College of Education’s Secondary Education Department (6 semester hours).
