Further your explorations in mathematics and teaching concepts in our research-based, doctoral-prep MA in Mathematics Education program. We designed our master of arts degree program for students with a strong mathematics background and a background in secondary mathematics education who are interested in doing research for a thesis.
Our program provides you an opportunity to strengthen your mathematics background, develop your research skills, and deepen your educational approach. Through coursework and individual faculty guidance, you will develop the skills needed to conduct original research, making this degree a good precursor to a doctoral degree.
You will take classes in three distinct areas:
In addition, you must perform three hours of research and both write and defend a thesis.
Our program of study consists of 30 hours and requires:
Your mathematics education faculty advisor must approve your course selection.
Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
Most graduate students at UGA are not assigned to a faculty advisor until after admittance. A close working relationship with your advisor is paramount to progressing through your program of study.
The Mathematics Education Student Association provides you with access to professional resources through its book sale, regular colloquia, service projects, and social activities. This student group produces The Mathematics Educator, a semiannual journal that offers you publishing opportunities.
