Science Education Ed.S.

Back to Science Education

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.
