The Masters of Arts in Education (MAEd) with a concentration in High School Mathematics is a practitioner-oriented program designed to sharpen instructional expertise, develop skill in research, deeper mathematics knowledge, and promote leadership in mathematics education.
Experience a blend of both distance and face-to-face education. Most of the courses in the MAEd in High School Mathematics are offered in a distance learning format. This offers a large degree of convenience and flexibility, but it's important to note that these courses require the same level of commitment and effort as attending a class on campus. The courses from the Department of Mathematics are done in a face-to-face manner, with most students taking advantage of summer offerings to pick up most of their MATH classes. If you are interested in earning the MAEd in High School Mathematics at ECU, but have only limited ability to commute to campus, then our program may be right for you!
Admission to the Graduate School includes an application, official transcripts, a copy of your teaching license, and two letters of recommendation from someone aware of your potential as a graduate student. Applicants must have an overall undergraduate GPA of 2.7 on a 4.0 scale and a Graduate Record Exam or Miller Analogy Test at or above the 30th percentile. (Exception: 10 years of teaching exempts applicants from the testing requirement.)
