Graduate Academic Programs
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
offers a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Middle School Mathematics and
a Master of Science in Mathematics Education. Both programs have been
supported by the NSF- and MHEC-funded
ADEPT project. Both programs are intended for graduates of teacher
education programs with an interest in teaching mathematics. Neither
program provides certification to teach.
Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Middle School Mathematics
This MHEC-approved diploma is awarded upon completion of an
advanced program of study for those already certified to teach or
those working towards certification to teach who are interested in
teaching mathematics in middle school. The CMSM program consists of
hands-on pedagogically innovative mathematics content courses.

Masters of Science in Mathematics Education (MSME).
The MSME is intended for those who currently hold teaching
certification. It has two tracks, one in middle school mathematics,
and another in high school mathematics. The program includes
education requirements, but unlike the M.Ed., it is based on
mathematics content, and its electives allow participants to take up
to six mathematics content courses. Those interested in the middle
school track may either have an undergraduate major in education or
mathematics. Those interested in the secondary school track should
have an undergraduate major in mathematics.
