Part 1: Apply to Graduate School

The Graduate School handles admission for all graduate programs at the University of Georgia, including those in the College of Education. The Graduate School website contains important details about the application process, orientation, and many other useful links to guide you through the process of attending UGA at the graduate level.

Domestic Application Information International Application Information

Most programs have additional requirements* beyond the Grad School application. Review Part 2: Apply to Program for admissions information specific to the MA in Education (Mathematics Education).

*For example, you may need to schedule an interview and/or submit additional documents such as writing samples, a CV or resume, or a statement of purpose. Some programs require an official transcript, not just the unofficial transcript as required by the University.

Part 2: Apply to Program

For the MA in Education (Mathematics Education)

We base admissions decisions on a variety of factors including past performance in course work, especially mathematics course work, GPAs in past degree programs, entrance exam scores, and letters of recommendation.

Minimum Requirements

  • Completion of at least 2 semesters of calculus
  • Passing or exempting GACE I

Applicants must submit their official GRE or MAT scores during application. In recent years, students admitted to our master's degree programs have earned average GRE (quantitative) scores in the 65th to 70th percentile and average GRE (verbal) scores in the 50th to 55th percentile. We also accept the Miller Analogies Test (MAT).

While completing the Graduate School application, you will need to provide:

  • 3 letters of recommendation
    You will identify your letter writers and their email addresses when you apply, and they will receive an email from the Graduate School asking them to complete the form online. Choose recommenders who know your academic work well and can speak to your capacity to engage in graduate level study of mathematics, to perform well in courses requiring high levels of reading and writing, to work as a classroom teacher, and to be successful in a graduate program. Do not solicit "character references" from friends, family, or people you know socially.
  • Transcripts
    Applicants should submit unofficial transcripts from all institutions attended as part of the online application. Official transcripts are not required during the review process and will only be required for applicants who are offered admission. Do not mail official transcripts until offered admission.
  • Test Scores
    Have your GRE scores sent directly to UGA using the institution code 5813.
  • Statement of purpose
    Please tell us why you are interested in the program for which you're applying. Please include any relevant experiences which have driven your interest.
