Indiana University East has received final approval for a new online Graduate Certificate in Mathematics program from the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. The certificate program will begin fall 2014.
“The Graduate Certificate is an exciting new program for Indiana University East,” said Markus Pomper, chair of the Department of Mathematics. “It allows students who have a graduate degree in education or some other discipline to earn sufficient graduate credits in mathematics to meet the qualifications for teaching at the community college level.”
In conjunction with a master’s degree in any discipline, the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics provides the qualification for teaching introductory mathematics courses at the community college level. Additionally, the certificate provides current high school teachers who wish to teach dual credit or AP courses in mathematics with the necessary qualifications. Undergraduate students completing a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics may use the certificate to help meet admission requirements to graduate school.
Students completing the certificate will earn 18 credit hours in mathematics at the graduate level. This program is available only in an online setting.
