Teacher Education Concentration, Mathematics Education Specialization
The PhD in Education, Teacher Education Concentration, Mathematics Education Specialization prepares researchers and teacher educators to serve local, regional, national, and global mathematics education communities. The program is for those who seek to understand more deeply mathematics teaching and learning across PreK-16 or to explore the preparation of future elementary, middle, or secondary teachers of mathematics. Program completion requires doctoral research and a dissertation that represents original contribution to what is known about mathematics education. In addition to program requirements, students have opportunities to develop as researchers and teacher educators under the guidance of their advisor or other program faculty. Upon earning the degree, individuals are qualified to carry out research, to teach at the post-secondary level, or to work in a research- or teaching-related position outside of higher education.
