Overview | Careers
This graduate mathematics degree program provides post-baccalaureate education both for certified secondary teachers and those wishing to teach at the state college level. The courses emphasize conceptual foundations of mathematics tailored to the needs of public school teachers and aligned with the Florida standards, using software applications which tie mathematical content to pedagogical goals, and project-based activities focusing on classroom applications.
The M.S.T. program is designed to be completed part-time in three years, with three of the required mathematics courses offered per year: one each in fall, spring, and summer terms. (With the substitution of a 6-credit thesis, this degree could be completed in two years.)
Admissions Requirements and Prerequisite Coursework:
Admission requirements for the M.S.T. program are the same as for the M.S. in Mathematics.
Applicants without a mathematics degree must have taken a substantial amount of upper-division mathematics and will be required to complete MAS 4301 (Modern Algebra) and MAA 4200 (Modern Analysis), if their equivalents have not been taken.
- Mathematics teacher, middle school through college instructor.
