Graduate School Secondary Mathematics 9-12 (M.Ed.)
The High Point University Master of Education in Secondary Mathematics program builds on the most current body of knowledge of best practice relevant to teaching grades 9-12. The program is designed for candidates who have a baccalaureate teaching license in secondary mathematics or who will receive a teaching license before the end of the first term of graduate enrollment. The program requires a comprehensive examination and 36 hours (i.e. 15 hours of professional education core, 15 hours of specialty courses, and a six hour capstone experience.) Candidates must select 18 hours of mathematics coursework from among a specialized menu of options. Upon completion of the M.Ed. degree program in Secondary Mathematics candidates are eligible for the “M” level license.
The Mathematics program coordinator is Dr. Rob Harger. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.841.9659. For more information check out the School of Education website or Education brochure today!
