Master of Science: Science or Mathematics Education – Online

Two flexible options available for science and mathematics educators

Science and mathematics educators can now earn their master's degree online in the innovative new field of Free Choice/Informal Learning (FCL), or further their expertise in science or mathematics as a traditional K-12 school-based educator.

Oregon State's online option is for science and mathematics educators wishing to pursue advanced knowledge and expertise in the classroom setting or free-choice learning arenas, such as museums, zoos and national parks.

The online master's degree in science or mathematics education is an innovative program, designed with the mid-career professional in mind. It provides a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary approach to education while creating a dynamic and vibrant learning environment.

Online options available

  • Free-Choice (Informal) Learning  - Do you work, or would you like to work, in a science museum, national park, zoo, aquarium or science-related community organization? Do you want to better understand how people learn about and use science and mathematics in their daily lives?
  • School-Based - Are you a science or mathematics teacher in a K-12 setting wishing to pursue advanced knowledge in your profession? Or a secondary-level teacher training as a curriculum or professional development specialist, department head or other supervisory or research-oriented position?
