Graduate Opportunities

University of George

Graduate programs in mathematics education at the University of Georgia lead to the degrees of Master of Education (M.Ed.), Master of Arts (M.A.), Specialist in Education (Ed.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The programs also serve students who are working on initial teacher certification, either as non-degree students or as candidates for the M.Ed.

Students in all these programs have opportunities to participate in the activities of CPTM. Inasmuch as major part of the Center’s focus involves the preparation of doctoral students, the Ph.D. program offers special opportunities—including courses, seminars, assistantships and fellowships—designed to help students learn about approaches to professional development and to become professional developers (including teacher educators) themselves.

The University of Georgia also has a Mathematics Education Certificate program for Doctor of Philosophy student in the mathematics program.  Students preparing for an academic career in mathematics pursue an program of coursework and internships specifically oriented to mathematics teaching and the preparation of mathematics teachers. 

University of Michigan Seal

Graduate programs in mathematics education at the University of Michigan lead to degrees at Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Science (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.).

The doctoral program has a strong cross-disciplinary structure with an emphasis on general education and policy studies. Part of the role of the Center is to help restructure the program to link mathematics and mathematics education more closely, developing programmatically into doctoral study the sort of research and teacher education practice that has flowered in the last several years. The Center also aims to promote the development of a doctoral program that will admit cohorts of qualified and talented educators interested in problems and practice related to the professional education of mathematics teachers.
