Master of Science - Mathematics Education, M.S.

The Master of Science in Mathematics Education (MS-MEd) is designed for individuals interested in strengthening their understanding of mathematics, statistics, and educational theory and practice in order to enrich their own teaching of mathematics and statistics. Completion of the program will also qualify individuals to teach concurrent enrollment courses and to teach at some community colleges and universities. For college-level academic concurrent enrollment (dual-credit) courses, the Utah Valley University Mathematics Department requires that instructors have a master’s or doctoral degree with 18 graduate hours in mathematics or statistics. However, the MS-MEd does not lead to a teaching license. The program is flexible to serve the needs of in-service teachers.

Matriculation Requirements

  1. Admission to the Graduate Program.
  2. A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, equivalent undergraduate coursework to the Mathematics Endorsement 4, and at least two years of teaching experience.
