Two Easy Ways to Reach 18 in 15

1) Seven Courses Summer 2017 through Summer 2018

  • Two or three courses in SU 17 (5 or 8 hours) 
  • One course FA 17 (2 hours)
  • One course SP 18 (3 hours)
  • Three or two courses in SU 18 (8 or 5 hours)
  • Total: 18

2)  Six Courses Summer 2017 through Fall 2018

  • (all of the classes in the three credit hour column)

The Master of Arts in Educational Mathematics degree (30 hours) can be earned in two years by taking classes summer, fall and spring. EDUC 6890: Research seminar is offered every fall term and EDUC 6895: Research capstone is offered every term.

Consider sending a team of educators from your school, creating a professional learning community that can support and strengthen the entire mathematics department.

A “summers only” option for the master’s degree can be created with a cohort of 12.
