  Master of Arts in Mathematics
  for Secondary Teachers

Kent State University at Stark's Master of Arts (M.A.) in Mathematics for Secondary Teachers is a three-year program offered in the evening and summer. Designed collaboratively by faculty in mathematical sciences and teacher education, the program is for in-service high school teachers seeking a master's degree in math. This program does not lead to teacher certification.

Your graduate program will be designed by an advisory committee, consisting of members of the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Teaching, Learning & Curriculum Studies. Through an initial interview, the advisory committee will help you clarify your educational objectives and will formulate a graduate program that reflects a balance among your professional needs, academic training and related outside interests.
