If you’re in the early years of your math teaching career and thinking about earning a master’s degree, you’re probably looking for a program that will not interfere with your classroom routine. Moving miles to a university campus may be out of the question. The Mathematics Education program of Ball State University is a perfect fit for that.


The Mathematics Education program of Ball State University has courses taught by the same engaged professors who teach on campus. Math education programs—particularly those in elementary education math—are few and far between in an online classroom.

Depending on the teaching license you hold and your experience, you can choose one of three master of arts in mathematics education concentrations:

  • For Elementary and Middle School Teachers
  • For Secondary School Teachers
  • For Elementary and Middle School Specialists

What Other Features Will You Find?

  • Our degree covers areas identified and advocated by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
  • You can finish the degree in two to three years.
  • Online summer classes are available.
  • If you’re uncertain about starting a complete master's program, consider a graduate certificate in elementary mathematics leadership. It's another way to earn a graduate-level credential but in a shorter time frame.
