M.S. in Science Education
Advances in science and technology have revolutionized the way we live. Science teachers from Syracuse University rise to the challenge of helping students learn the processes, skills and body of scientific knowledge necessary to excel in our technological world. Our students are prepared to bring the most recent scientific developments to the classroom, working closely with our faculty to build on the knowledge, skills and values they need to become leading educators. We subscribe to these guiding National Science Foundation standards:
Science is for all students
Learning science is an active process
Science education reflects the intellectual and cultural traditions that characterize contemporary science practice
Improving science education is a significant task in any effort at systemic educational reform.
The M.S. in Science Education leads to New York State teacher certification grades 7-12. Our certification programs combine multiple diverse field experiences with campus-based coursework, emphasizing theoretical and practical knowledge in research-based science teaching and learning in four subject areas: Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Physics.
