Master's Degrees

← Back to Program List


The Master of Arts for Teachers of Mathematics (MAT) degree is for licensed teachers of secondary mathematics and is not intended for individuals seeking teacher certification in mathematics.

This graduate degree program requires three consecutive summers to complete, plus time spent on a project during one academic year, following the first or second summer. Teachers can enter the program any summer, as courses are repeated every third year.

The summer courses, especially designed for teachers, meet in the mornings from mid-June into the second week of August. There are two terms each summer which do not conflict with secondary school calendars. The courses emphasize mathematical content, rather than methods of teaching mathematics. The use of appropriate technology is a component of the program. The courses are also open to those who want them only for enrichment.
