Additional License in Mathematics Education
This program is designed for teachers who hold a Minnesota license and want to add an additional license to expand their areas of expertise in their schools. Our courses are designed and taught by leading researchers. Knowing the quality of our curriculum and instruction, districts hire and retain our graduates because of their expertise and leadership.
After you are admitted, you will receive a customized curriculum plan of courses to take to be recommended for licensure. This ensures you get maximum credit for previous academic work and work experiences.
Following are the state-required competency areas and the corresponding U of M course requirements:
You can pursue the additional license alone or pursue the additional license and M.Ed. degree in mathematics education at the same time.
You will need to apply to both the license program and the M.Ed. and then work with your adviser to plan your coursework to meet both requirements simultaneously.
- October 1 for Spring admission
- February 1 for Summer admission
- June 1 for Fall admission
Students need a current state of Minnesota teaching license and a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. institution or foreign equivalent with at least a 2.8 GPA.
Admission decisions are made up to eight weeks after the application deadline. The number of credits required to complete this program varies based on past coursework, which will be determined upon receipt of your application.

"The coursework definitely prepared me for my career. I was given tools such as how to prepare a lesson and unit, strategies and techniques to use in my classroom, how to assess student understanding, and handle issues and situations appropriately."
