Mathematics Education, Master of Science
Do you find beauty in mathematics, love the challenge of finding new ways to solve a problem, and enjoy the satisfaction of helping others learn? NAU’s MS in Mathematics Education degree emphasizes connections between secondary and post-secondary mathematics content and effective teaching practices. Here, you will deepen your understanding of key concepts in middle school, high school, and college-level mathematics while learning how to use research in mathematics education to guide your professional development. You will learn how to use a variety of tools to create interactive learning environments designed to engage all learners.
The Master of Science in Mathematics Education plan is specifically designed for continuing teachers and emphasizes the connections between secondary mathematics content, effective pedagogy, and reflective practice. Completion of this plan will not result in teacher certification. All courses in the program are offered online (though one course has a collaborative component). While certain aspects of this program would be beneficial to those interested in community college teaching, the program itself is not specifically designed to prepare one for a community college career. This program is available only as an extended coursework plan.
