KNOWLEDGE OF MATH AND SCIENCE IS VALUED

Students enter the MSED program with a masters degree in either:

Mathematics (Pure, Applied, Statistics)

Biology

Physics

"Math Heavy" Math Education

Few programs require such strong content background. We believe this distinction:

  • Frees you to study any aspect of the learning/teaching of your subject at any level (kindergarten through college), thus increasing your versatility as a researcher
  • Positions you better in the job market, especially for university opportunities in Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, or Physics departments

A LARGE, DIVERSE FACULTY

  • 48 faculty members across 2 campuses and 10 academic departments
  • The ability to support a wide range of dissertation topics
  • Organic development of student interests based on an expansive faculty expertise
