Science Education Emphasis, M.Ed.
The School of Education and Division of Teaching, Learning, Leadership and Policy offer an M.Ed. (masters) in education with an emphasis in science education. The M.Ed. is a 30-credit degree designed to support the professional practice of in-service teachers.
Faculty expertise includes ambitious science teaching, equity in science education, integrative approaches to elementary STEM education, pre-service science teacher education, and professional development and mentoring of in-service science teachers. Science education faculty often collaborate in grant-funded research with colleagues in the SOE, across campus (e.g. engineering), and nationally.
For students interested in licensure recommendation, the School of Education offers an Educator Preparation Program. If you have a bachelor’s degree in science (or a closely related field) and want to teach science to students in grades 5-12, you will want to join our M.A.T. science education program, which leads to licensure recommendation in this field.
