The Mathematics Education program at the University of South Florida offers Bachelors, Masters, and PhD degrees.

The Bachelors and MAT programs are designed to prepare effective teachers of middle and high school mathematics who are knowledgeable, reflective, caring, and are able to meet the needs of a diverse student population. Successful completion of our programs leads to certification in grades 5-9 and 6-12 mathematics in the State of Florida. Our programs of study include courses in mathematics, pedagogy, teaching methods, and classroom management with an ongoing emphasis on effective technology use in the classroom and equitable mathematics instruction. Authentic classroom experiences are also embedded in our programs through teaching practicum course and a final internship.  

The Masters in Education (M.Ed) program is designed for the professional educator who wishes to pursue advanced study in mathematics education. The primary objective is to prepare instructional leaders through courses in curriculum, methods, supervision, learning principles, human interaction, and areas of specialization (mathematics and/or mathematics education).

The doctoral (PhD) program is designed to prepare mathematics education professionals to engage in research, as well as facilitate means to promote reform practices relative to mathematics teaching and learning.
