Prerequisites for admission to each master's degree program are a baccalaureate degree and coursework in education and in science and mathematics.
Master of Arts. This program consists of thirty-five semester hours, with at least twenty-one hours at the graduate level. The major field is composed of eighteen hours in education, including nine hours in the science and mathematics education core-course sequence, three hours of research methodology, and six hours for researching and writing the thesis. The minor field consists of twelve hours in science and/or mathematics. An additional five hours may be drawn from coursework chosen by the student in conjunction with the graduate adviser.
Master of Education. The program is the same as the program for the Master of Arts described above, with one exception: In addition to the requirements for a Master of Arts, students must be certified to teach at the elementary or secondary level. Students may earn certification to teach through additional coursework while enrolled in the Master of Education program.
Students seeking the degree of Doctor of Philosophy must show evidence of related professional and academic experience, including a master's degree or the equivalent in a science or mathematics content area.
Core courses. Students must complete the fifteen-semester-hour core course sequence in science education and mathematics education through the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. A description of the sequence is available from the graduate program. It is highly recommended that students enroll each semester in Curriculum and Instruction 185G (Topic: Mathematics and Science Education Forum).
Research methodology. Students must complete at least six hours of coursework in research methodology.
Content courses. Students must have demonstrated competence equivalent to that required for a master's degree in science and/or mathematics. This requirement may be met by completion of eighteen semester hours of coursework in science or mathematics.
Related courses. Students are expected to broaden and deepen their program of work by taking a variety of related coursework consonant with their scholarly interests. This coursework must be chosen in consultation with the graduate adviser; a list of possible courses is available from the graduate program.
