The Master’s in Education Program (MEd) in Science Education offers graduate study for educators in the sciences across a range of institutional, community, career, and disciplinary contexts. There are two options: Strand A includes entitlement to an Illinois Professional Educators (PEL) license with high school or middle grades science endorsements; Strand B has an emphasis on out-of-school science education contexts, or an advanced-studies focus for experienced teachers or educators interested in exploring career trajectories in research. The MEd in Science Education program is aligned with the mission, vision, and values of the UIC College of Education. We prepare science educators who transform education to advance justice and liberation. We envision science education that fosters human flourishing. And we value engagement, hope, and justice in and through science learning contexts within and beyond schools.

The licensure strand (A) of the MEd in Science Education can be completed in as little as 12-months for students who begin in the Summer term. Either strand may also be completed over two academic years, with most courses meeting in the evenings.
