Graduate

The Mathematics Department at Salem State offers four graduate programs.

Our Master of Science program provides a bridge between an undergraduate mathematics major and further graduate study at the doctoral level, while also providing a mastery of core mathematics that enables excellence in teaching at the secondary and junior college level. For more information, visit the Master of Science in Mathematics webpage in our School of Graduate Studies. 

Our Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics is a thirty-six credit program to be completed within a six year period that prepares students for initial licensure in secondary mathematics and enhances the mathematical and pedagogical preparation of practicing mathematics teachers. For more information, visit Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics  webpage in our School of Graduate Studies.

Our Master of Arts in Teaching Middle School Mathematics is a thirty-nine credit program that serves middle school teachers who already have an appropriate provisional certi√ěcation with advanced standing or initial license, and who wish to complete a masters degree program to become eligible to apply for professional licensure. For more information, visit the Master of Arts in Teaching Middle School Mathematics webpage in our School of Graduate Studies.

Our Fast Track Program is an intensive program of coursework and support seminars is designed for new teachers with an academic background in mathematics who need courses in pedagogy and an initial teaching license. Courses are offered in a streamlined format in late afternoons, evenings and summers.  Participants may complete the program in a year and a summer.  Participants lacking content required by state and/or national standards will need to complete additional coursework. Program completion requires the preparation of a portfolio documenting learning and performance. For more information, visit the Fast Track Program webpage in our School of Graduate Studies.
