Drive student understanding in mathematics through knowledge and instruction.

Help your students improve their math skills with the online Graduate Certificate in Mathematics Education from Lesley University. Our program will cover mathematics content and teaching, with elective courses including numbers, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, and calculus. You’ll learn how to transfer what you learn to the classroom to help with student learning and improvement. And you’ll study in a convenient, fully online environment with experienced faculty and engaged peers.

If you have a master’s degree from an accredited institution and hold an initial Massachusetts teaching license in elementary education, mathematics (1-6), middle school mathematics, or math/science (5-8), you may use this program to earn your professional license.
