Master of Arts in the Teaching of Mathematics

The Texas Christian University Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree program in mathematics serves to prepare highly qualified teachers of mathematics at the secondary and two-year college levels. The program provides a broad knowledge of mathematics and its history, teaches problem solving skills, and exposes students to the general philosophy of mathematics alongside specific techniques for teaching mathematics. The degree plan includes 24-27 hours of graduate mathematics courses together with 9-12 hours of graduate education courses. Class sizes are small and the courses are scheduled in a flexible manner to accommodate the needs of full-time teachers.

Since the inception of the program in 2000, many students have graduated with the MAT degree in mathematics. Their success stories and employment opportunities offer a true measure of the program’s effectiveness. Graduates have pursued doctoral degrees in Mathematics Education, obtained instructor positions at colleges, and served as department chairs or lead AP teachers.

Award-winning professors, faculty expertise in a wide range of research areas, and abundant opportunities for one-to-one student and faculty interaction characterize our program.
