Mathematics, Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics aims to improve mathematics education and student achievement by focusing on two specific research-supported areas. First, by delivering high-quality content-based knowledge critical to student achievement, and second, by targeting in-service teachers who desire to teach dual credit in high school, given that dual-credit/dual-enrollment students are more likely to persist in college and are more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree in less time than those who did not attempt college credits in high school. Graduate courses for this program will be offered as evening classes and during summer sessions to match in-service teachers' schedules and will be taught on the main campus and live-interactive by Utah Valley University’s full-time graduate faculty.
