Preparing new science teachers and providing career development for current teachers

The Science Education program offers graduate study for those interested in science education careers across a wide range of institutions in urban settings:

Students work toward one of two strands while earning their MEd:

  • Strand A—This strand offers licensure for those interested in teaching high school science in an urban setting. Options include biology, chemistry, earth and space science, environmental science and physics. Strand A can be done as a one year program (May to May) or as a two year or more program.  See the advising guides below for the layout of courses by semester for each program plan.
  • Strand B—This strand emphasizes science education in urban settings for the following students: already-licensed science teachers from early childhood through college; those working at, or interested in, not-for-profit science-related museums and organizations; or those seeking advanced studies in science, including those interested in eventually pursuing a PhD.
