# Educational Mathematics Curriculum

The Master of Arts in Educational Mathematics program may be completed in two years, with substantial course work completed during the summer (see Projected Class Offerings for 2 Year Degree Completion for more information). Students also have the option to take these classes over a longer period of time, as needed. While most of the classes will be offered in a traditional format, some of the classes will be offered in a blended or web format. Classes also will be offered during the daytime and in the evening to accommodate the schedule of working teachers. Please note, the Master of Arts in Educational Mathematics program is NOT a license granting program.
