Masters of Science Teaching in General Science Program
Graduate students work with faculty advisors to develop and carry out a student learning and teaching based research agenda. Several scholarship pathways are open to MST graduate students through involvement with Research Affinity Groups including:
- Student learning assessment,
- Curriculum and instruction,
- Teacher professional development,
- Informal science education program research and
- Minority participation and achievement in the sciences.
In addition to research, MST students take graduate level science and education courses. The MST is administered within flexible guidelines to match the needs of students with varying backgrounds and professional plans. For more information contact: Stephanie Wagner at 503-725-8345 or e-mail email@example.com.
Past MST graduate students have had the opportunity to attend and present their research at professional conferences such as the annual meeting of the National Association of Research in Science Teaching and at the International Conference on Service Learning. The CSE's pedagogy follows an inquiry process that challenges students to develop new ways of viewing science education. Students are expected to carry these techniques back to the community, thereby creating more knowledgeable students with a greater capacity for inquiry and a better informed citizenry.
