The goals of this program are to prepare students to:
The MSE program requires its graduates to:
This program aims to produce college-level professors and researchers in mathematics and science education but will also prepare leaders in K-12 mathematics and science education whose jobs require them to perform, evaluate, and integrate the results of research in mathematics and science education into K-12 classrooms. This program will also improve the way K-16 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses are taught.
A strength of the Ph.D. in Mathematics and Science Education is the individual attention available to the students and the strong mentoring relationship between the program faculty and the students. If you have any questions about the Ph.D. program, please contact the Graduate Program Director.
