In addition to classroom teaching, graduates can pursue careers as science educators, curriculum specialists or enter graduate study in science, science education or related fields.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Candidates will make instructional choices that emphasize the hands-on, minds-on, real-world, phenomenon-based approach to science learning.
- Candidates will accurately describe the principals and procedures of scientific investigation and the safe use of investigation processes.
- Candidates will describe and give examples of the role of science in fostering and satisfying curiosity, in solving human problems, and in informing human decision-making.
- Candidates will synthesize knowledge of the interrelationships among the life, earth/space, and physical sciences and the cross-cutting themes that connect the sciences to technology, math, and engineering.
- Candidates will apply scientific research understanding and critical analysis skills to lead students in discussions of global and local aspects of issues such as the environment and human health.
- With the guidance of a faculty mentor, candidates will develop a well-designed, well-executed, and clearly communicated research project that contributes to scientific knowledge.
