The M.A.T. program in Mathematics Education prepares candidates with no prior teaching experience, to teach math in K-12 schools.


This degree is designed primarily for those holding a B.S. or B.A. in mathematics and who would like to become teachers, but have no previous coursework in education. It features advanced work in math along with the courses required for certification, which candidates receive upon graduation. This program consists of 49 semester hours of coursework, but additional coursework may be advised to render the candidate’s baccalaureate degree equivalent to one from the University of Iowa.
