For Mathematics Educators

This program enables teachers, administrators, and other formal and non-formal educators at all grade levels to enact meaningful mathematics teaching and learning in all possible learning environments. Interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary approaches are used to support rich mathematical investigations and to implement challenging curricular structures that exceed state and local standards and objectives.

The program is suitable for elementary, middle and high school teachers and administrators who want to specialize in mathematics education, those who work in educational agencies and curriculum development, community college instructors, and others who are interested in the best mathematics education practices for all students.

Attend Part- or Full-Time

You can complete the program part- or full-time, with evening classes offered 4:30-10 p.m. Monday through Friday during each 14-16 week semester. There are also a few online courses. Simply choose how many courses you'd like to register for each semester with the help of your academic adviser.

Full-time status for graduate students is nine or more credit hours per semester. Most students register for at least two courses a semester, allowing them to complete a master's degree and/or teacher certification within 18 to 24 months.

Become a Certified Teacher

The master’s degree is not required for certification. Certification requirements may vary based on your academic experience. See Certification.

Customize Your Program

You also have the option of customizing your master’s program by including one or more Arcadia certificates or a credential. For example, a student wanting to do an M.Ed with a concentration in Early Childhood/Elementary may consider including Early Childhood Leadership and Infant-Toddler Mental Health certificates, and a PA Director Credential.
