Why study Mathematics?

The Master of Arts for Teachers of Mathematics (MAT) degree is for licensed teachers of secondary mathematics. 

The goal of the program is to provide our students with a deep understanding of the fundamental mathematical ideas of high school mathematics. To that end, our courses emphasize mathematical content rather than methods of teaching mathematics and provide an advanced perspective on the topics our students teach in their own classrooms.

This graduate degree program requires three consecutive summers to complete. Each summer we offer a two-course sequence covering a main topic of high school mathematics, a course that introduces and uses technology to support this main sequence, and an additional supporting course on a related high school topic. Through these courses, we focus on expanding your mathematical knowledge to help build your expertise.

All applicants for the MAT program are automatically reviewed for partial scholarship eligibility at the time of application.
