Master of Science in Mathematics Education
The M.S. in mathematics education program at Salisbury University is intended for those who wish to teach mathematics. The program allows you to focus on either middle school or high school education and allows flexibility of scheduling, so you can work toward your degree at your own pace.
Why Choose M.S. in Mathematics Education at SU?
The curriculum at SU follows the major principles of mathematics. Most recent offerings have looked at the four major K-12 mathematical strands (algebra, geometry, number theory and data analysis) through the lens of the Common Core State Standards.
At SU, you will be able to tailor your program to your needs. The program allows for flexibility of scheduling, and students can create a program of study that allows for degree completion in two years. However, most M.S. in mathematics education students are full-time teachers who take one or two courses per year. Several courses are offered in a hybrid format and all other courses are offered during the summer session or at night, allowing you to pursue your degree around your busy schedule.
This degree is not a teaching certificate. The awarding of this M.S. in mathematics education does not carry certification to teach.
Students applying to the M.S. in mathematics education program should review the admission requirements.
TracksThe M.S. in mathematics education program has two tracks, one in middle school mathematics and another in high school mathematics. The required math courses in both tracks are linked to the core learning goals in algebra, geometry and data analysis.
