Mathematics Education Ph.D. Program Named 7th Best in Nation
By Lorena Nava

San Diego State University's joint-doctoral program in mathematics and science education was named the 7th best in the country in an article published in Notices, the journal of the American Mathematical Society. The Ph.D. program is administered in conjunction with University of California San Diego.

"The rankings reinforce what we've believed for some time – that our program is one of the best in the country," said Joanne Lobato, SDSU director for the Ph.D. program. "With the increased need for rigorous math and science education in the U.S., SDSU and UCSD are working together to help produce high-quality researchers and teacher-educators for this growing field."

About the Rankings

The rankings, conducted in early 2007, were based on a nationwide survey of 70 doctoral programs in mathematics education.

Institutions were ranked based upon nominations received from faculty members at other institutions granting doctoral degrees in mathematics education; SDSU received 17 nominations. As noted in the study, 80 percent of the programs reviewed housed their doctoral programs in their college or school of teacher education.

While the SDSU/UCSD program receives nominal funding from the College of Education, the program is housed primarily in the College of Sciences, and was the top-ranked such program.

More About the SDSU Program

The SDSU/UCSD Ph.D. program in mathematics and science education is a part of the SDSU Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education, which brings together researchers interested in studying the teaching and learning of mathematics and science.

Since 2000, CRMSE faculty members have brought in over $40 million in externally funded grants. These research grants provide financial support for doctoral students, as well as important opportunities for learning critical research skills.

In the Ph.D. program, students complement their knowledge of math and science with studies of how people learn such subjects. The interdisciplinary course requirements, which include courses in cognitive science and philosophy, strike a balance between theoretical and practical classes, including a teaching practicum.

Additionally, the program has three components: research apprenticeship experiences, practical applications and formal course work.

Canadian PhD programs in the 2006-08 PGR

With the kind permission of Brian Leiter, here's a breakout of the Canadian philosophy departments by specialty according to the Philosophical Gourmet Report 2006-08. The same programs are ranked in 2006-08 as in the 2004-06 edition. This year, only the rank ordering of the top four departments was given in the PGR. As two years ago, I'm providing the the rank ordering based on both the entire survey responses and the responses from Canadian evaluators (with mean scores in parentheses). The numbers following the specialties are: the peer group the program falls in and the rounded mean/median score. The "Notable" category (median of 3.0) is no longer included in the PGR (according to Brian Leiter, merely for reasons of time). See the overall rankings and the specialty rankings from the PGR for explanations.

PS: Because Canadian students wanting to study at a Canadian school don't exactly have many options for any given specialty, you might consider consulting last year's rankings as well. That still gives the "notable" category for the various specialties (ie, median scores of 3.0 that just barely didn't make the official rankings).
