The K-3 Mathematics Specialist Certificate is offered through Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education with support from the NebraskaMATH grant.
This certificate is especially helpful for starting the careers of new teachers, but experienced educators can also benefit from the specialized instruction in math education.
This certificate is for educators in the NebraskaMATH program looking to enhance their credentials in mathematics education. Educators who earn this certificate can continue as a generalist, teaching in all subjects or move into the role of a math specialist.
All courses are taught on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln city campus or at NebraskaMATH approved sites.
