Which graduate program is right for you?

1. Master of Arts in Mathematics Education (MA)

This program is designed to prepare the licensed, in-service secondary mathematics teacher to be a leader, researcher, and master teacher. It is designed for mathematics teachers with an initial ("A") license who, after the successful completion of the program, will obtain the North Carolina "M" license in Mathematics (9-12).

2.  Master of Arts in Education, Middle Grades Education Program (MAEd)

This program is designed to prepare the licensed, in-service secondary mathematics teacher to be a leader, researcher, and master teacher. It is designed for mathematics teachers with an initial ("A") license who, after the successful completion of the program, will obtain the North Carolina "M" license in Mathematics (6-9).

This middle grades program is currently under revision.  Please contact the Program Director for more information.

3. Master of Arts in Teaching, Middle Grades Mathematics Specialization, grades 6-9 (MAT)

This program is part of an interdisciplinary degree housed in the School of Education. This degree, compatible with Lateral Entry licensure, allows graduates of accredited colleges or universities to seek teaching licensure in an appropriate area. This program has two phases; completion of Phase I leads to initial ("A") licensure, and at the conclusion of Phase II candidates will be recommended for "M" licensure. The mathematics 6-9 Specialization accepts candidates with undergraduate degrees other than mathematics, though admission may require completion of some provisional mathematics coursework.

Students who are not currently teaching at a public school will be required to complete a 10 week internship.

All MAT students must complete the Teacher Candidate Work Sample (TCWS) as part of their licensure requirements.
