I am Mathematics teacher teacher interests in pursuing my masters in either US or Canada. My sponsor has told me only stem courses would be considered. May I know whether Mathematics education in which I am interested is officially classified as a stem course and hence could be considered?
Again, I am 48 years old. Does worth it going in a masters in Mathematics education.
Is it advisable to go in for international student loan?
Yes, mathematics is considered part of STEM. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
If it's worth it entirely depends on what your goals are for getting your masters. School in the US can be very expensive so if you have plans to use that masters for work or get increased pay it could be worth it. If you're getting it because you love learning and just want to expand your knowledge you may want to consider somewhere where it might be more affordable.
With the loan it again matters why you're getting the masters. In my opinion the more you can avoid taking out loans the better so if you have a way to avoid taking out a loan I would try to do that. But if a masters will significantly advance you in your career or increase your pay a loan might be worthwhile.
