Mathematics Graduate Certificate


The graduate certificate in mathematics is designed for high school mathematics teachers who have a master’s degree in another area (education, for example) and need graduate mathematics courses in order to teach dual credit or community college courses. Non-teaching professionals may also benefit from the knowledge and critical thinking skills obtained in the program.

Required and Elective Courses

This graduate certificate requires 18 credit hours.   The program includes required courses in modern algebra, analysis and topology as well as electives in number theory, graph theory, combinatorics, and statistics. For a complete program listing click the “Program of Study” link on the left side of this page.

Admission Criteria and Cost

The admission requirement is an undergraduate degree in mathematics (or equivalent coursework) with at least a 3.0 GPA in upper level mathematics courses. Occasionally we offer conditional admission to students not quite meeting these criteria. 

You may calculate the cost of courses in this program by using the UCM cost calculator.  If you plan to take the courses from a distance (by web conference) you must use the calculator associated with hybrid/online courses.
