Two flexible concentrations for science and mathematics educators
Oregon State University offers a Master of Science (M.S.) in either Science Education or Mathematics Education entirely online.The M.S. in science or mathematics education equips professional educators with abilities to facilitate learning in formal and informal environments. This degree also gives professionals in non-formal learning environments an opportunity to take an active role in science, mathematics and technology-focused educational experiences.
You can focus in School-Based Education (K-12) or Free-Choice Learning. School-Based Education is ideal for practicing mathematics or science teachers who would like to specialize in advanced STEM education. Free-Choice Learning is ideal for teachers or professionals who provide informal education in science museums, zoos, aquariums or similar free-choice learning environments.
The two concentrations share core classes, so whether you teach in formal or informal settings, you'll discuss curriculum, assessment and research across different educational environments and learner ages.
Upon completion of the Master of Science in Science Education or Mathematics Education, you will be able to:
- Conduct research or produce other forms of creative work
- Demonstrate mastery of subject matter
- Conduct scholarly or professional activities in an ethical manner
