M.A. in Science Education

This degree is designed primarily for those who decide that they would like to become teachers and have already completed a B.S. and B.A. in an area of science. It features advanced work in science along with the courses required for certification. It is a means by which candidates can attain a Master’s degree and certification at the same time.  This degree program assumes the candidate has completed considerable science, at least 56 s.h., as an undergraduate, but no previous course work in education.

Students should have an equivalent degree program as those in Science Education in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Iowa. An applicant with a strong major from another institution may be licensed only in that particular science discipline. A GPA of 3.0 is required for admission and must be maintained throughout the enrollment period.
