Ed.M. in Mathematics Education


Coordinator: Juan Pablo Mejia-Ramos (848-932-0804; email: (pablo.mejia@gse.rutgers.edu)

Please visit the website.

The master of education (Ed.M.) degree program in mathematics education is designed for individuals who possess a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution of higher education, who have relevant experience in mathematics, and who wish to pursue a master's degree in education. While New Jersey certification is not required for entry into the program, many of the students are already certified and employed in New Jersey secondary or postsecondary schools. (One program option, the Ed.M. in Mathematics Education (Certification: Teacher of Mathematics), serves the needs of students who are seeking New Jersey teacher certification.)

Description of Master's Program

The following outline serves as a guide to the distribution of courses. Students are urged to maintain frequent contact with their advisers in order to construct a plan of study, select appropriate courses, and discuss changes that may be needed or desired. Please note that at least 15 of the 30 credits that comprise the full degree program must be school 15 (Graduate School of Education) courses taken at the 500 level or above.

Electives (12 credits)


Students are required to complete four electives. At least three of these electives must be completed in the Graduate School of Education (GSE) or be education-related courses in the mathematics department. (Note: to obtain the five school 15 (GSE) courses required for graduation, at least one course must be a school 15 course. The remainder can be undergraduate courses at the 300-level or higher). Students can take these electives in a wide variety of areas (such as science education, educational psychology, and special education), or in one of the many certificate and endorsement programs offered in the Graduate School of Education.


We recommend the following mathematics education courses:


05:300:341(G) High School Mathematics Content: Teaching and Assessment (3)
