Mathematics for the Middle Grades (4-8):

This major is intended for teachers interested in mathematics for the middle grades (4-8) and for mathematics specialists and supervisors. Teacher licensure is a prerequisite for completing the program approval process for this major. Normally, candidates will have at least 2 years teaching experience.

Students interested in this program must submit a completed Application for Admission to Graduate Study and should contact the Department of Mathematics for other admission requirements. Graduate information and application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission.

The Graduate Record Examination (General Test) is not required for admission to the program.

Only graduate courses (course numbers 5000 or above) will apply to a graduate degree, even if the undergraduate course number (4999 or less) is listed. No exceptions will be made.

This major is available on the non-thesis option only; a minimum of 32 hours is required. A minimum of 15 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required.
