Graduate Programs

Mathematics Education (7-12), M.S.Ed.

This program is designed to develop, enhance, and extend the content knowledge and professional competencies of secondary mathematics teachers. Completion of this master of science program does not lead to New York State initial teaching certification. Those interested in receiving initial certification should consider the postbaccalaureate teacher certification program in mathematics education grades 7-12 (7055).

There is no road map for the M.S.Ed. program. Please consult with your advisor for course selections. For a tentative list of the proposed course offerings click here.

Mathematics Education (7-12), Postbaccalaureate Teacher Certification

The mathematics education (7–12) postbaccalaureate teacher certification program leads to eligibility for a New York State initial certificate to teach mathematics in grades 7–12. This program is designed for students who have earned a baccalaureate degree in mathematics from an accredited college or university and intend to complete coursework required for New York State certification to teach mathematics.

Mathematics Education (7-12; 5-6 Extension), Teacher Certification Extension

This program is designed for students who are currently enrolled in the mathematics education 7–12 postbaccalaureate teacher certification program (7055) or who have been approved for candidacy in the mathematics education master's program (6620). It allows them to extend certification in mathematics to grades 5–12.

Professional Applied and Computational Mathematics, M.S.

The goal of Professional Applied and Computational Mathematics (PACM) is to train graduate students for careers in many emerging fields that now demand a new type of workforce with solid, in-depth background in applied and computational mathematics, as well as business and communication skills.
