About the Program

The Certificate in Mathematics Learning and Teaching requires the completion of 15.0 credit hours of coursework and is designed to provide mathematics teachers with development opportunities for enhancing the quality of their instruction. Recognizing that many teachers pursue graduate studies while working full-time, the program has been designed as such so that it can be completed over five quarters (requiring only one course per quarter). All courses in this program are in an online format.

Students in the certificate program take courses alongside those in the MS in Mathematics Learning & Teaching. All of the certificate courses can be counted towards an MS in Mathematics Learning & Teaching program. Additionally, certificate students may concurrently pursue the MS in Teaching, Learning and Curriculum.
