Science Education, Master of Science in Teacher Education with a Concentration in Educational Studies

Admission Procedures

Students should meet with a Science Education advisor* before beginning coursework and regularly throughout the program. All courses in the graduate program must be approved in advance by a Science Education advisor.

Committee Formation and Graduation Preparation

The student should consult with the advisor concerning the composition of the Master’s Committee. The committee consists of at least three faculty members including the chair. The chair of the committee is the student’s advisor.

Admission to candidacy forms (list of courses and committee signatures) should be filed with the graduate school the semester PRIOR to the desired semester of graduation. Students should carefully read the Graduate School News online for exact deadlines for filing this form, as well as the application form to schedule the final examinations. The final examination is scheduled the semester prior to graduation also. These two forms are available in the Graduate School office or in the CEHHS Office of Advising and Student Services Center.
