Program Description:

The M.A. program in Mathematics Education leads to New York State initial teacher certification for grades 7-12. Led by faculty with a wide range of classroom experience, scholarly publications, and longtime involvement with professional associations, the program emphasizes content mastery in mathematics, a clear understanding of current instructional materials and pedagogical methods for diverse learners in urban settings, and teaching methods that provoke critical thinking and inquiry-based learning. Students in the program with the appropriate mathematical background may take their mathematics courses at NYU's world-renowned Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

The pivotal experience of the program is a two-semester sequence of student teaching at the secondary and middle school levels, where M.A. students—mentored by their cooperating teachers and NYU field supervisors—are given increasing responsibility for teaching in the New York City public schools. Placements are available at schools that have special partnership arrangements with NYU. Current teachers seeking professional certification may study full or part time in our 30-credit program.


New York University is a member of the Association of American Universities and is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
