About

Do you enjoy teaching elementary math? Do you like working with other teachers? If so, becoming an elementary mathematics specialist is a good option for you! We offer a master degree in Elementary Mathematics Specialist at the University of Central Missouri. 

Overview

University of Central Missouri’s Elementary Mathematics Specialist Program prepares graduates for a variety of leadership roles in math education—math coach, math resource teacher, math teacher in a departmentalized setting, or math curriculum specialist. However, many of our candidates choose this option simply to become more effective teachers of elementary math!

Our program leads to an advanced teaching certificate as an elementary mathematics specialist. This will open new career options for you! Our program is almost entirely online. Some of the courses have some face-to-face sessions (never more than five a semester) that are offered in multiple locations so they are accessible to our students. Interestingly, our students like the convenience of the online format, but they consistently tell us the face-to-face sessions are the best part of our program.
