Science is one of many powerful lenses we use to understand ourselves, the world, and the universe. It is exciting, ever-evolving, and always relevant. However, secondary science education has failed historically to engage diverse learners in essential questions, meaning-making, and inquiry that are based on phenomena and curiosity, especially in urban contexts.
Our Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in Science Education program seeks to develop passionate science educators who leverage students' funds of knowledge in culturally responsive classrooms where students not only learn science ideas but also engage actively in science practices and realize their potential as scientific thinkers and contributors to the field.
Applicants should have a Bachelor’s Degree with a major in biology, chemistry, physics/engineering, or substantial study in related areas.
