Earn a STEM education master’s degree online

A teacher’s influence never stops, and you can make your mark on future generations by becoming a licensed science or mathematics teacher in the state of Oregon. To get there, become a student in Oregon State University’s M.S. in Education hybrid degree program and fill a statewide need for skilled professionals in the classroom.

Studying alongside a cohort of peers, you’ll draw upon current educational research to create innovative and inclusive science and math learning environments. Faculty in Oregon State’s College of Education will help you develop a broad range of instructional strategies so you can meet the needs of diverse learners at different levels of development.

A one-of-a-kind program in Oregon

Oregon State offers the only M.S. in Education program in the state, which exemplifies our leadership in educating STEM professionals in Oregon and beyond. This program places additional emphasis on enhancing future teachers’ STEM content expertise as part of their licensure program.

And while program graduates earn a K-12 Oregon Teaching License, the state of Oregon has reciprocity with many other states. This program will benefit existing and aspiring educators who live throughout the U.S.
Asynchronous classes + synchronous meetings

This is a hybrid program that blends asynchronous online coursework with face-to-face classes. The in-person class meetings — taken in fall and winter terms — provide an opportunity to travel to Oregon State's Corvallis campus two Saturdays per quarter. Or you can join remotely via Zoom.


Choose a pathway of one or two years

The program’s cohort-based model spans four terms, beginning in summer. Select between the full-time, one-year cohort or the part-time, two-year cohort. The two-year cohort features the program’s core courses in year one and the specialized courses and internships in year two. See the curriculum page for more coursework details.

Upon successful completion of the program you will receive:

  1. A Master of Science in Education degree in one option: Science Education or Mathematics Education
  2. A K-12 Oregon Teaching License with an endorsement to teach at the middle and high school levels.
  3. One or more subject matter endorsements for your teaching license. These include:
    • Advanced Mathematics
    • Biology
    • Chemistry
    • Physics
    • Integrated Science

You can also earn an ESOL endorsement and/or Dual Language Specialization during the program. These include additional coursework and field experiences beyond the program’s required number of credits.
