The Professional Teacher Education Program in Science and Mathematics is a challenging Master's program which prepares science and math teachers for teaching in grades 6-12 and emphasizes the development of a teacher’s ability to develop research-based teaching strategies that make science and mathematics accessible to learners. Specific attention is directed at the interaction of schools, learners, pedagogy, subject matter and curriculum. The program is unique in that it focuses solely on science and math education. This allows you to be in a supportive cohort of high-achieving science and math peers taught by faculty who specialize and conduct research in science and math education. We strive to provide a cutting-edge, high-quality program that will utilize and build upon your content knowledge and experiences to become an innovative middle or high school teacher. If you are currently an undergraduate at OSU, you have the choice of becoming licensed in mathematics or science teaching through the Double Degree.
At the end of the program you will have:
It is also possible to earn an ESOL or ESOL/Bilingual endorsement during the program. This option includes additional coursework and field experiences.
The program consists of 58 graduate-level credits. This includes 9 credits of additional graduate-level coursework in your subject area. We strive to find funding for students ($130,000 in scholarships last year!). Please see below for more information including prerequisites and application procedures.
