Science Education

Program Description:

The Science Education program offers Master of Education (M.Ed.) and Master of Arts (M.A.) degrees in Science Education. The M.Ed. degree program is designed to meet the advanced knowledge and skill needs of certified secondary science teachers, enabling them to expand their subject matter knowledge and professional teaching skills. The M.A. degree program was created to allow those not certified to teach secondary science (such as non-education majors or previously certified teachers in another field) to become effective teachers of secondary science. It offers tracks in biology, chemistry, physics, middle school science, and community college teaching.

International Student Requirements:

In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution. International students are not eligible for nondegree/certificate status unless they hold an eligible visa. International applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. Also, international applicants should ensure all supporting documents, including those required to issue an I-20, are received by the stated application deadline. Only official documentation is accepted and it is the student's responsibility to submit all documents by the application deadline.
