This online program is intended for students who are secondary teachers who already hold teacher certification and are seeking rank change through attainment of a Master's degree.  This degree does not give a student initial teacher certification, nor is it intended to prepare a student for doctoral studies in mathematics.

The M.A. in Mathematics requires 30-34 hours of graduate-level coursework.  For admission to the Graduate College at WKU, click the following link for the The Graduate School.  For more information about the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), click the following link for the Educational Testing Service.  The GRE scoring system has changed since August 2011.  If you have a old GRE score, then you need to convert it to the new score by using a table that can be found under the following link.  

The Department of Mathematics offers graduate assistantships to students in residence at WKU for $9,000 per semester, part of which can be applied directly to tuition.  The application form can be found at the following link.
