Join our new cohort of Math in the Middle

With the flexibility of remote learning and the current savings in tuition and fees, now is the time to begin a master’s degree program in mathematics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Since 2004, 237 teachers have completed the Math in the Middle program, participating in a 36-hour graduate program leading to a Master of Arts for Teachers (MAT) degree from UNL’s Department of Mathematics.

We are now accepting applications to Math in the Middle from teachers who want to be of this community of highly qualified teachers of mathematics in grades 4-8. Acceptance will be done on a rolling basis.

The Math in the Middle program begins with Math 800T: Mathematics as a Second Language and Math 802T: Functions, Algebra & Geometry. The sections for Math in the Middle participants are:

• Math 800T, Sec. 590: To build a sense of community, this course will be offered synchronously June 8-12 and June 15-19, with live whole-group Zoom meetings.
• Math 802T, Sec. 601: This section will be offered July 13-August 13 asynchronously. Participants will form small study groups and work at their own pace.

Applications for the Master of Arts for Teachers degree program are due May 18, 2020, with Graduate Studies. Separate from the Graduate Studies application, you need to let us know you are interested in being part of the 2020 Math in the Middle cohort. You will have an opportunity to do this as part of an application for fellowship support. For application information and fellowship funding, please see our website:

Please note that the 2020 Math in the Middle cohort is designed with flexibility in mind. Teachers with prior graduate credit will work with an advisor to determine which courses can count toward their master’s degree, thus shortening the time to degree, and applicants can choose up to four courses to take this summer.
