The programme is a joint Nordic master suitable for those who want strong academic and didactic skills in mathematics in terms of teaching positions. You must also be interested in going out to one of our partners in the Nordic region:
Minimum 40 ECTS credits must be taken somewhere else. At the University of Copenhagen a minimum of 60 credits ECTS needs to be taken.
Through the program you develop advanced knowledge on key issues and methods in mathematics and mathematics education. You learn to apply theoretical and practical knowledge of mathematics and mathematics education in the field of practice, and to develop your own ideas and make research-based analysis of problems in mathematics education. After completing the program you can communicate research results, analyze and relate actively to academic, social, and ethical questions that arise in learning situations in mathematics.
The joint Nordic Master's programme in didactics of mathematics educates highly qualified mathematics teachers for all levels of education. It also qualifies for work in teacher education in colleges and universities.
The master programme consists of:
Minimum 30 ECTS credits in didactics of mathematics
Minimum 30 ECTS credits in mathematics or in educational sciences
30 ECTS credits in relevant subject for the programme
30 ECTS credits master thesis
