Enhance your knowledge of mathematics education with the MEd in Mathematics Education for grades 6-12. Advance your career with an in-depth study of mathematics and mathematics education with an emphasis on leadership.
The MEd degree is for certified secondary school teachers. This program allows you to upgrade your certificate and, optionally, to earn a coaching endorsement. Upgrade information is available on the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) website.
This program prepares you for leadership in mathematics teaching for grades 6-12. If you are interested in teaching PreK-8, see our Griffin program.
For teachers who already have a Master's degree, regardless of institution, the MEd program can be tailored into an EdS program that incorporates previous Master's work.
You will build skills and knowledge in mathematics, pedagogy and curriculum, and leadership. Our program fits the scheduling needs of full-time teachers and prepares them for leadership roles in schools and districts by including course work and practical experiences in coaching, curriculum design, and analysis of policy.
Your program of study will consist of 36 hours:
Your program includes course work that can lead to a coaching endorsement and concludes with a leadership project.
Courses are offered in a hybrid format. During Fall and Spring semesters, coursework will occur one evening a week. Summer courses include concentrated face-to-face meetings built around school district calendars. The program can be completed in 2 years with only 2 courses per semester.
Most of your fellow MEd students will be practicing teachers. As a result, your participation in the program offers both valuable knowledge and a new set of colleagues who can provide you with ideas and advice on your career.
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.
Taking courses with other full-time mathematics teachers gives you the opportunity to discuss solutions to common challenges in the classroom and in the profession.
The Mathematics Education Student Association is an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. It provides current and future teachers with access to professional resources, regular colloquia, service projects, and social activities.
