Program Outline: Master in Teaching
Mathematics and Science (MTMS)
The MTMS is a full-time, field-based degree, offering classes in three formats: on-campus, online, and in a school setting. Online courses allow you to engage in virtual learning and benefit from asynchronous discussion formats. Field-based classes allow you to observe course concepts applied in the classroom and to engage professionals in learning-focused discussions. Candidates spend most of their time (30-plus hours per week) in the schools, working the same schedule as a teacher.
Core Component, including Internship (45 credits)
Graduate Degree Component (15 credits)
For your required MTMS internship, you are paired with a qualified mentor teacher and conduct supervised teaching in a school setting for the entire school year (three quarters, September–June, five days a week).
The internship follows a co-teaching model where the mentor teacher and teacher candidate are both actively involved and engaged in all aspects of instruction. As a team, they share the planning, organization, delivery, and assessment of instruction.
The MTMS degree program takes 14 months to complete, running continuously from summer through summer (five quarters). Except for the summers, and one night a week during the school year, almost all of the MTMS coursework takes place in a school setting.
Your Master in Teaching Math and Science program course sequence can be customized to meet your needs.
