Do you enjoy teaching elementary math? If so, becoming an elementary mathematics specialist is a good option for you! 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.


UCM is one of six universities in Missouri working collaboratively to offer the elementary mathematics specialist program. These universities have worked together for many years to design a program that prepares you well to work as a math specialist. Courses transfer easily among these universities.

Our Elementary Mathematics Specialist program at the University of Central Missouri 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.
