MS in Science and Mathematics Education
Science and mathematics educators can earn their master's degree online in the innovative new field of Free Choice Learning (FCL), or further their expertise in science or mathematics as a traditional K-12 educator. The M.S. Science & Mathematics Education online program features two options: Free-Choice Learning or School-Based. The Free-Choice Learning is for professional science and mathematics educators looking to provide experiences for learners to take an active role in science, math and technology-focused education.
The program is geared toward those who work in locations such as: science centers and museums, national and state parks, zoos, aquariums. The School-Based option helps practicing K-12 educators gain knowledge of teaching mathematics or science beyond their teacher preparation program. Educators will benefit from the program's dedication to strong subject-specific knowledge in mathematics or science, as well as the integration of current and emerging technologies. This degree requires 45 credits to complete.
