About Teaching Mathematics Education at University of Pittsburgh
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program in Mathematics Education offers students a rigorous course of instruction in teaching Mathematics in grades 7-12, combining methodological course work and practical experience in a full-year internship in a public school classroom. Capstone courses that support learning from teaching culminate in a reflective teaching portfolio and project.
Candidates graduate satisfying the requirements to earn a Pennsylvania Instructional I Certificate and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree.
Our program is focused on research-based best practices that support all children to learn and is committed to fostering practices that further social justice.
Secondary Mathematics MAT alumni are employed as high school and middle school mathematics teachers in public and independent schools in Pittsburgh, across Pennsylvania and around the country.
As they gain experience, some of our graduates have become teacher leaders and coaches, and have returned to obtain leadership degrees, such as the practice-based EdD in STEM Education, or educational research-focused degrees, such as the PhD in Mathematics Education.
