Mathematics Education
Programming competencies in at least one computer language and further computer science training equivalent to at least 6 points of graduate study ordinarily are required of all students seeking degrees beyond the Master of Arts. These points either can be included in the mathematics/mathematics education requirement or can be taken as electives. In order to ensure that prospective college teachers understand the history, organization, and function of American higher education, all students seeking degrees beyond the Master of Arts should enroll in at least two courses related to college teaching.

In addition to content courses in mathematics, students should enroll in at least two professional courses in mathematics education including MSTM 4019, MSTM 4020, MSTM 5012, or MSTM 5520. All students are encouraged to take MSTM 5800-5801 for 1 to 3 points in at least two semesters
