In concert with the College of Science, the Science Education program offers professional development opportunities for science teachers at all levels. We design and coordinate courses that support the preparation of science teachers in the areas of biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics. In cooperation with the College of Education and the Secondary Education Program, we oversee the single subject teacher credential program in science through advising, coursework offerings and student teacher supervision. In addition, we offer a master’s degree in Science Education.
