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.
