Recognized as a national research leader in the fields of mathematics and science education, this department combines the expertise of its internationally known faculty with the energy and innovation of its rising young scholars.

The University of Georgia has one of the largest and most respected groups of mathematics and science education faculty in the world. All of our prominent researchers teach doctoral courses and direct doctoral dissertation studies.

Although you may work with nearly all of the faculty—either in courses or on research projects—the most important aspect of the doctoral program is the close relationship you develop with your major professor. This faculty member serves as your mentor for the final dissertation as well as for navigating the world of science teaching, science education research, and science teacher education.
