The master's program in Mathematics Education welcomes both current teachers and career-changers, regardless of whether or not they were mathematics majors as undergraduates. To be eligible for admission, applicants need only hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. Applicants who were not undergraduate mathematics majors or minors or math education majors should contact the graduate program director David Jabon (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss how they can best prepare for the program.
Before enrolling in Mathematics Education courses, students must first demonstrate proficiency in Precalculus. This can be done either by scoring sufficiently high on the mathematics placement exam or by having earned a grade of B or higher in at least two Calculus classes.
To apply, submit the following:
Detailed application instructions are posted on the
CSH Graduate Admissions page.
International student applicants must submit proof of English language proficiency in order to be reviewed for admission. The College of Science and Health accepts scores from the TOEFL, the IELTS and the Duolingo English Test (DET) as proof of English proficiency. Students who have previously earned an undergraduate or graduate degree in a country where the official native language is recognized as English may be exempt from the English language proficiency requirement.
To be considered English language proficient, the Mathematics Education program requires a score of at least 96 on the iBT TOEFL, or at least 7.5 on the IELTS or at least 125 on the DET.
Applicants whose English language proficiency scores are below the stated minimums but who otherwise meet all admission requirements may be granted conditional admission until they demonstrate English proficiency by completing DePaul's English Language Academy program. Requirements for conditional admission are posted on the International Admission website.
For additional information for international students, please visit the International Student Admission Process page or contact the Mathematics Education program director David Jabon.
If you are uncertain about your mathematics background, you are welcome to take a
mathematics diagnostic test.
