2018-2019 Graduate Academic Catalog

Graduate Certificate in Mathematics Education 18 credits

Lesley University's online Graduate Certificate in Mathematics Education, which meets endorsement requirements in multiple US states, emphasizes deep mathematics content knowledge and helps teachers connect this knowledge to classroom practice and their own students' understanding of mathematics. The program consists of six courses, of which five are content courses and one is a pedagogy course.

This certificate program may also be used as a specialization to fulfill some of the requirements for the M.Ed. Individually Designed Program for Educators and the M.Ed. in Educational Technology.

Please note: In certain states, a student may receive an endorsement/second license by completing Lesley's 18-credit program in mathematics education. It is important to check with your teacher licensing office, as additional steps may be necessary in order to meet state requirements. For more information on this process, please visit the state pages at the National Center for Teachers, Counselors, and School Leaders.
