The Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah offers a general Master of Science degree as well as some specialized master’s degrees. One such degree is the Master of Science (M.S.) in Mathematics Teaching at the University of Utah (also known as Mathematics Teaching M.S.), a two-year program primarily addressed to in-service secondary teachers of mathematics.


The main goal of the Master of Science in Mathematics Teaching program at the University of Utah is to extend and enrich secondary teachers' understanding of mathematics and to help teachers acquire a deeper and broader mathematics background.

The programme
