The MSEd in mathematics education program incorporates courses in mathematical content, pedagogy and research.  This approach will improve the student’s knowledge of mathematics and enhance their ability to teach effectively at the K-12 level. The program arises from collaboration between the School of Education and Human Development (SEHD) and the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). It interweaves both mathematics and education leading to a truly interdisciplinary program.

The MSEd core courses provide a sound basis in mathematics education, curriculum theory, teacher inquiry, appreciation of diversity and philosophical foundations.
