Advanced Certificate in Math & Science Education

Advanced Certificates

Math Education: 15 units

Washington University Institute for School Partnership, in coordination with mathematics and education, has established a 15-hour graduate certificate program in math education through University College, the evening division of the College of Arts & Sciences. The certificate program is directed at in-service teachers of grades K–8. Candidates for this program generally teach K–8 math, but do not have a college degree in math. Admission to the program is competitive and by application only. Teachers receive 3 graduate credits in education for each relevant course completed. The credits may include undergraduate math courses offered through University College, as well as selected math education courses. The program is designed so teachers will receive graduate credit for the additional undergraduate courses.
