Special features or areas of interest that would be of interest to potential doctoral students: 

Doctoral students in mathematics education take a common set of core courses, dealing with curriculum, learning, teaching, and research in mathematics education. They also select electives from other areas, and from programs and departments outside the School of Education. In addition, we engage our students in two apprenticeships (in research and in teaching) that provide focused opportunities to use and augment what they are learning in the contexts important to work in mathematics education. Our faculty is engaged in a wide variety of projects, spanning all the range of grades, from Kindergarten to post-secondary and tertiary education, both within the School, with the Mathematics Department, and nationally and internationally. Hence, myriad opportunities exist for graduate students to gain professional knowledge and skills through their involvement in these projects.
