The School of Education, in cooperation with the Department of Mathematics, in the College of Arts and Sciences, offers a preparation program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics Education: Preparation 7-12. The Mathematics Education Preparation 7-12 program is offered by Syracuse University.


Key facts

The Mathematics Education Preparation 7-12 program is designed for students who have attained a bachelor’s degree with a major in mathematics or its equivalent, and seek initial New York State certification to teach mathematics in  grades 7-12.  The program aligns with the professional standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the New York State Teaching and Learning Standards.  Full time study is required.
