In 1894, the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point began as the Stevens Point Normal School, whose primary purpose was to prepare future educators. Today, the program in Mathematics Education is part of the School of Education (SOE) which is at the forefront of innovation in our field. We have consistently been first or second in Wisconsin for job placement.
We offer personal course advising each semester and pre-registration to help students avoid wait lists. Our class sizes are small, typically under 30 students. Our faculty are caring, energetic, and creative. We invite you to join our program!
