Graduate Certificate for Dual Credit Teaching in Mathematics
This Graduate Certificate provides secondary teachers advanced disciplinary training in teaching dual credit math courses.
This certification provides the 18 hours in graduate mathematics coursework which can be counted towards a Master of Science in Mathematics with a Mathematics Education concentration. In particular, completion of the Graduate Certificate for Dual Credit Teaching in Mathematics would place graduates halfway towards completing the UNT MS in Mathematics Education concentration.
The graduate certificate program offers courses tailored to meet the needs of practicing teachers aiming to

deepen their subject matter knowledge in secondary school mathematics and collegelevel mathematics content and curricula from an advanced perspective. This perspective considers not only the many interconnections among high school mathematics topics, but also their relationship to collegelevel mathematics.

enhance their pedagogical and curricular knowledge by investigating current issues and trends in mathematics education.
