Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics

The dynamic Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics (MAT) program at Loyola Marymount University provides rich opportunities for secondary school teachers to broaden their background in mathematical science and to apply this knowledge to their current pedagogy. Our faculty are nationally-recognized experts in best practices for optimal student learning in mathematics and statistics. This program offers hybrid classes, making it ideal for the following types of educators:

  • Secondary teachers, teacher leaders, or math coaches interested in a deeper understanding of mathematics (and who also desire a degree from a mathematics department)
  • Mathematics teachers seeking a master’s degree to acquire a salary increase
  • Secondary mathematics teachers who want to teach at a community college

Our curriculum is organized around teacher cohorts. The cohort approach creates a close-knit environment that caters directly to individual teachers and their needs, allowing for one-on-one faculty engagement and a unique sense of camaraderie among teachers. Each cohort completes the following courses:

  • Five mathematics courses that provide an in-depth exploration of K-12 mathematics and its connections to graduate level mathematics
  • Five education courses
  • Credit from other graduate programs may be transferable

Join the next cohort of mathematics educators in deepening content knowledge and becoming master teachers!
