Science Education Ed.S.
If you have a master’s degree, but aren’t quite ready for a Ph.D., an Ed.S. may be right for you. In our Ed.S. program, focus on your area of specialty (biology, chemistry, physics, or general science), expand upon your master’s work, and earn a Class AA Alabama teaching certification. You’ll complete a field project that addresses a practical problem in science education.
The Ed.S degree leads to recommendation for Class AA Alabama professional educator certification.
Coursework — 30 to 33 hours minimum
- Teaching field — 12 hours
- General Science programs shall require at least one course in two areas within the broader field (e.g., biology, chemistry, physics, geology).
- Science education and professional courses* — 18 hours
- Includes Field Project
*RSED 6000/6006 Advanced Survey of Exceptionality is required if a survey of special education course was not previously completed.Back to Top
