Radford’s Math Education Content Area Studies program offers licensed Virginia mathematics teachers the opportunity to enroll in courses in which they can earn a master’s degree or a mathematics certificate entirely online.
Teachers seeking a master’s degree complete a 36 credit hour program, which includes 18 credit hours of math content and 18 credit hours of education, technology and research. The mathematics certificate program consists of 18 credit hours of math content.
The program designed for:
- Licensed secondary mathematics teachers
- Students with an undergraduate degree in a mathematics education licensure program
- Prospective college/university mathematics instructors
The master’s program enhances secondary mathematics teachers’ knowledge for teaching while providing the mathematical content preparation required for teaching at most two-or four-year colleges.
“While our main emphasis is to improve our student’s content knowledge and teaching practices, it is important for potential candidates to also know that we provide an affordable graduate education that will also help them to advance their careers, making our program an economically wise investment," Corey said.
