Effective Fall 2015: applications now accepted for the PhD program.
All current EdD students will continue in the EdD program.
Montclair State University’s PhD program in Mathematics Education prepares students for careers as mathematics educators at two- and four-year colleges, mathematics curriculum developers, researchers, leaders in school districts and educational agencies, and research-based teachers in the classrooms.
Students enter the program with a variety of experiences and interests (curricular, pedagogical, psychological, philosophical, etc.) related to mathematics education. Students work actively with doctoral faculty to refine their research interests throughout their course of study. As many of our students have experience teaching at the secondary and collegiate levels, their research has the benefit of being grounded in, and applicable to, practice.
