Project Description

The Master of Arts in Education major in Mathematics Education program is a competency-oriented program designed to offer students with a strong foundation on the theories and concepts in human development and learning, research- based management practices needed for managing 21st century school, curriculum development, and innovations in education. This program aims to develop creative and efficient educators able to use competency and outcomes-based standards and blended educational technology for quality education.


The Master of Arts in Education major in Mathematics Education envisions to instill a culture of excellence and a globally- oriented educational managers/leaders.


The Master of Arts in Education major in Mathematics Education aims to develop educational leaders/managers able to conduct scientific research and apply the skills in planning, designing, implementation, and evaluation of policies and reforms in education. The program likewise endeavors to prepare educators and would-be school administrators to give a sound and ethical educational leadership at all levels with the ability to drive meaningful and sustainable improvement in educational institutions.

Program Intended Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Master of Arts in Education major Mathematics Education, graduates are expected to demonstrate:
  • leadership skills, professional responsibilities, and ethical actions in resolving educational management concerns and issues;
  • expertise in research-oriented assessment and evaluation of current educational practices and intelligently integrate the advanced knowledge in theories, policies, and principles governing educational management;
  • competence in understanding the global development and diversities of educational management practices as a result of precise analysis and evaluation of school needs and concerns;
  • adeptly in conceptualizing and generating educational theories relevant to the diverse learning situation through advanced knowledge;
  • research capabilities in replicating, verifying, validating, contextualizing, and applying theoretical and practical knowledge in managing and leading educational institution; and
  • expertise in generating knowledge cognizant to teaching, learning, and community service attuned to their specialized areas relative to independent research projects and activities.
A summary of the findings and synthesized suggestions have been considerd to institute desired changes for an effective operation of theon-going program fordynamism and visioin for excellence in science and technology.
The program is designed to develoo pedagogical skills for teaching Mathemaics and to substantiate holistically the relationahip between theoretical underpinning of teaching mathematics and the dimension of the teaching practice in the grassroot level.  The ultimate goal of this program is to produce educators with significant image and contribution for the continuous development learning and teaching.


  • Enhance competence of science and mathematics teachers in content and pedagogy and make their training relevant to the needs of the community;
  • Develop in them understanding of the relatedness of the sciewnce and their application to daily living, andenhance their ledership qualities and cap[abilities in science and mathematicseducation research.
