The Master of Education (MEd) in Mathematics Education - Professional Studies from University of Minnesota is a graduate-level program designed for experienced mathematics teachers who want to acquire advanced knowledge and leadership skills in the field of mathematics education.


The MEd, Mathematics Education - Professional Studies degree from University of Minnesota does not lead to teaching licensure and is designed for teachers that already hold a teaching license. If you wish to earn your teaching license, please apply to our MEd and Teaching License in Mathematics Education program.


With guidance from faculty advisors, candidates complete courses in three areas: a core academic program in education, courses specific to the area of mathematics education, and elective courses. Coursework is planned around your individual interests.

Topics covered include:

  • instruction and assessment
