Offered through the Department of Mathematics at Texas State, this program has a particular strength in the number of courses required in mathematics to complement courses in the teaching and learning of mathematics: Doctoral graduates will have completed a substantial mathematics core in addition to the mathematics education core, thus opening a variety of employment opportunities.
This program is designed for individuals whose career goals will take them into professional leadership roles involving mathematics education within the United States or internationally. Graduates of the program will be prepared for positions as mathematicians or mathematics education faculty in colleges and universities; as decision makers in state or local education agencies; as researchers in think tanks, corporations, or not-for-profit organizations; as high-ranking staff in foundations or international organizations; or decision-makers within a national ministry of education.
Students beginning the program are expected to have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics, Mathematics Education, or a related field. Students, especially those with a degree in a related field other than Mathematics or Mathematics Education, may need to take background leveling courses. This would be decided on a case by case basis by the appropriate Advisor and would be articulated at the time of admission.
