Overall, the doctoral program will require at least 81 semester hours completed within a coherent program of study developed and approved by the candidate's Major Professor and Doctoral Committee (which may include transferring up to 30 approved graduate semester hours). The overall structure includes:
|College-wide core||9 hours|
|Mathematics Education||18 hours|
|Research & dissertation||24 hours|
To satisfy Mathematics Education hours (18), the following EMAT courses (four required and two joint electives with Science Education) are offered:
Theory and Research for Mathematical
Learning and Development
Theory and Practice for Mathematics Teaching and Teacher Education
Advanced Study of Mathematics Curriculum, Assessment and Evaluation
Analysis and Critique of Research in Mathematics Education
Quantitative Reasoning and Modeling in Mathematics and Science Education
Principles and Methods for Integrated Teaching and Learning of Mathematics and Science
These advanced Mathematics Education courses along with graduate study in Mathematics and Statistics, and Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methodologies, collectively build knowledge of theoretical and empirical perspectives to lead to a solid competence for engaging in both scholarly and practical work in the field at all levels. One program goal is to stimulate and guide each student to develop their dissertation research as a first step within a well-defined research program that can encompass the initial years of their post-doctoral scholarship.
