The program in Elementary Mathematics is designed and will be delivered collaboratively across five institutions (University of Missouri-Columbia, University of Central Missouri, Missouri State University, Southeast Missouri State University, and Northwest Missouri State University).


We offer a master degree in elementary Mathematics at the Northwest Missouri State University. The call to improve student achievement in mathematics is particularly challenging at the elementary level where teachers generally receive limited specialized training in mathematics or mathematics pedagogy. 

In order to address this demand for highly-trained mathematics teachers, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has established an advanced certification of Elementary Mathematics Specialist. 

Mathematical Association of American

  • Northwest Student Chapter of Mathematical Association of American (MAA) promotes the interest and study of mathematics through problem-solving, meetings, lectures and social events.

Programme Structure

  • Although most courses will be delivered collaboratively, each student must choose one of the collaborative universities as his/her home university. This is the university at which the student will enroll in all classes (paying that university’s tuition/fees), receive advising, and attend all face-to-face sessions.
  • The program includes five integrated mathematics content/pedagogy courses, four of which have an internship, and two leadership development courses and is designed for full-time classroom teachers. 
  • Program courses are offered over a 2-year cycle, but new cohorts may begin each fall. See the program summary below and/or your collaborative home university closest to you for more details. Classes may be capped, so students who wish to participate in this program need to apply at your home university as soon as possible.
