Mathematics Education M.S.
The M.S. math education is a 5-year combined B.S. in mathematics and M.S. in mathematics education program designed for undergraduate students who wish to continue to fulfill a master’s degree. Students major in mathematics and fulfill some, but not all, requirements for an education minor during their four undergraduate years. They then complete a 30-credit master's program during the summer, fall and spring of the fifth year.
The M.S. in mathematics education offers two program options:
- For the five-year combined B.S. in mathematics/M.S. in education program, students major in mathematics and fulfill some, but not all, requirements for an education minor during their undergraduate education. Students then go on to complete a 30-credit master’s program during the summer, fall and spring of the fifth year.
- The program also offers a track that is intended for practicing teachers who already hold a teacher’s certification or do not need instructional certification. This track provides students with content and pedagogical knowledge that enhances their ability to be effective teachers.
Classes are scheduled in the evenings during the fall, spring and summer semesters on a two-year rotating basis allowing students the ability to map out their entire program of study when they begin taking classes. Opportunities exist to engage in mentored research experiences outside the classroom with recognized mathematics and mathematics education faculty. With more than 20 years of experience preparing high school mathematics teachers, Saint Joseph’s University is pleased to offer this master's level program that provides professional development and on-going educational opportunities for all math teachers in the greater Philadelphia area.
