The Master of Science (M.S.) in Science Content and
Process program provides K-9 teachers and other science
educators integrated content knowledge in general science
by utilizing the resources of the local scientific community.
Participants will use the pedagogy of inquiry-based
learning and knowledge of technology to create an effective
teaching/learning environment for science education. This
program is intended for those teachers who want to increase
their science knowledge and confidence in science teaching.
Designed for the working professional, the degree program
is taught in a learning team model and meets evenings and
some Saturdays during the academic year. Day courses take
place during the summer. Teachers can manage full-time
employment while completing the degree in two years. Each
new learning team begins in June.
There is one learning team of 24 students each year. A learning team can also be created for a district should you choose to work with your co-workers. Applicants must hold a valid Professional Educator License or work as a science educator.
