This coed, blended program is designed for working professionals who wish to pursue an advanced degree while continuing their work with students and teachers. Course assignments have immediate application in school settings and support the work of teachers, coaches, and instructional specialists.


The Master of Arts in Mathematics Teaching degree (MAMT) offered through Mount Holyoke College’s Mathematics Leadership Programs, a division of the Professional and Graduate Education department, is designed for teachers, teacher-leaders and math coaches of grades K – 8 who have a teaching license (initial or professional) and at least a bachelor degree. The program is ideal for educators looking to strengthen their skills as math teachers or would like to develop their professional credentials in order to become qualified as Math Specialists.

Math Specialists provide a full range of support to the teachers in their school districts by: offering coaching programs or in-class support for teachers; designing and facilitating professional development seminars; interpreting data from a variety of student and district assessments; participating in district decision-making regarding the system plan for math instruction; and developing local assessment and evaluation instruments. The MAMT degree offers teachers of grades K -8 the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to take on these important professional responsibilities.

This program is built around the latest research and best practices in math education today. The core component of the work is the Developing Mathematical Ideas Curriculum. The two-and-a-half-year program involves three intensive summer sessions (3 weeks each) and two academic years of online work.

Each summer will consist of 3 weeks of courses, 2 focused on mathematics and 1 focused on educational leadership.
