Science Education (MA)

Science class

BUILD A STRONG FOUNDATION IN RESEARCH-BASED PEDAGOGY

This MA program integrates theory, application, and content, allowing teachers to strengthen pedagogy and content knowledge, and to add endorsements to their teaching licenses if needed. Our students learn how to teach science in a way that helps students construct their knowledge in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This program builds a strong foundation in science content knowledge to complement research-based pedagogical practices. Graduates are prepared to continue on in the classroom as highly qualified practitioners. Many also continue with additional education, move into administration, Area Education Agencies or a state agency as science consultants or other leadership positions.
