Mathematics, MAT

Master Of Arts For Teachers

The IU Online Master of Arts for Teachers in Mathematics combines coursework in education and mathematics to prepare you to be a dual-credit instructor at the high school and community college levels.

The educational component of the program covers instruction and curriculum, assessment, diversity and inclusive teaching, and research. Learn how to apply the science and art of teaching to college-level instruction. 

In the mathematics component of the program, you develop advanced knowledge in three of the following categories: algebra, analysis applications, topology and geometry, differential equations and applications, and probability and statistics. Learn to analyze and interpret mathematical data for real-world applications, to think and problem-solve mathematically, and to apply the best methods for teaching these lessons to an undergraduate audience.

Specific areas of focus include:

  • Algebra 
  • Analysis 
  • Topology and geometry 
  • Differential equations and applications 
  • Probability and statistics  

Many online support services are available to assist you as you progress through the program. 

Of Special Interest for Teachers/Instructors Needing to Meet HLC Dual-Credit Standards

The stackable structure of the MAT in Mathematics is ideal for those who want to teach dual-credit courses and who need to meet Higher Learning Commission dual-credit qualification standards. These standards require teachers wanting to teach dual-credit courses in mathematics to hold either a master's degree in mathematics or a master's degree in another discipline (such as education), plus at least 18 credit hours of discipline-specific graduate coursework.   

  • If you need both discipline-specific coursework and a master's degree, the MAT in Mathematics meets HLC standards. 
  • If you already hold a master's degree in a discipline other than mathematics, you can meet HLC standards by completing the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics

This 100 percent online, consortial program is taught by IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, IU South Bend, and IU Southeast. This consortial model allows you to take coursework from several campuses and learn from a wide range of faculty.
