Degrees

Explore the various degrees the Science Education program has to offer.

Bachelor of Science

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Science Education explores educational foundations and methods to prepare educators in middle and secondary schools. It also explores the theory and practice of teaching science education. The objective is to prepare reflective and caring educators.

Master of Arts in Teaching

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is for students seeking a Master’s Degree who are not certified/licensed to teach but wish to be. The program prepares students to teach science at the middle or high school levels. The MAT program prepares individuals who wish to become certified teachers in the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Physics.

Master of Education

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree is ideal for students seeking a Master’s degree who are certified/licensed teachers or who have professional experience in education. Most students are already certified teachers, while others have backgrounds in informal science education (e.g., museums, zoos, nature centers) or teach in high education settings.

Science Teaching Accelerated Master's Program

The Science Teaching Accelerated Master’s Program (STAMP) allows students to complete a Bachelor’s degree in a science field and earn a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) for middle and high school science education in a total of five years.

Doctor of Philosophy

The Doctoral (Ph.D.) Program in Science Education is committed to providing students with opportunities to examine and expand their educational content knowledge while immersing them in the research process. In doing so, the program is able to graduate exceptional leaders in the field.
