M.S.Ed. in Secondary Education

Science Education Track

We are currently seeking approval for a new “Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum” online degree. Until the approval process is complete, we will continue to accept applications for the residential (face-to-face) version of this degree.

Pursuit of this degree will increase your knowledge of advanced methods for engaging learners in science. This degree can prepare you to advance as a teacher or to work in a variety of settings outside the classroom such as museums, zoos, or after-school programs.

For those interested in research and evaluation you can pursue courses to increase your understanding of research methods and learning theory.

If you completed an undergraduate degree and are looking to pursue licensure to become a classroom teacher, explore certification through the Community of Teachers or Secondary Transition to Teaching programs.
