Upgrade your teacher certification in the field of science and enhance your approach to instruction with the MEd in Science Education. Informed by current research, state and national standards,our program emphasizes curriculum and teaching practices

For experienced teachers already holding T-4 certification, the M.Ed. is a professional degree designed primarily to enhance the student’s knowledge and skills in both science content and science teaching. It consists of 36 semester hours (normally 12 courses) of graduate credit, plus a capstone requirement of a Professional Portfolio designed to demonstrate the student’s advanced-level mastery of the knowledge and skills established by the National Science Teachers Association. Although the program may be pursued on a full-time basis, all required courses are scheduled during weekday evening hours during the academic year or weekday hours during the summer, in order to accommodate the schedule of the great majority of students who pursue this degree part-time while continuing to hold a full-time teaching job.
