The doctoral program’s strength lies in the depth and breadth of the mathematics core courses that complement core courses in mathematics education. The mission is to develop graduates who can contribute to research as future leaders in mathematics education, with a vision of enhancing our programs nationally for research and innovation in mathematics education.
The goals are:
- to develop a well-balanced foundation in mathematics content
- to link mathematics content to pedagogy that addresses the educational needs throughout the P-20 continuum
- to contribute to advancing knowledge in mathematics education through original research
- to produce high-quality mathematics teachers at all levels
