Colorado State University: OnlinePlus Master of Natural Science Education

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)

The United States Department of Education (DOE) states, "In the 21st century, graduating from high school prepared for postsecondary education and careers means having a solid grounding in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) field." This need for having proficiency in STEM education is not only for those who are pursuing careers in science, engineering, and teaching, but is essential for all students.

Teach the Teacher

William Author Ward states, "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."

The Colorado State University OnlinePlus Master of Natural Science Education (MNSE) builds on the existing knowledge of licensed teachers nation-wide to give them the tools to do just this. This degree increases teachers' science knowledge base and competency in teaching science at the middle-or high-school level. It combines science and education curricula with research to:

  • Expand science knowledge in the areas of biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental science
  • Advance instructional skills with coursework exploring classroom management, presentation skills, communication, and discipline
  • Enhance research skills and understanding of the methodology scientists use

This degree is a 34 credit, coursework-only degree (no thesis required). To apply to the MNSE degree program, an applicant must be a practicing instructor and/or licensed educator who has earned a B.S. in a science discipline from a regionally accredited institution.

Doctorate in Education: Leadership for Educational Equity

Program Overview

The goal of the Leadership for Educational Equity program is to prepare future leaders for social justice and equity in P-20 and community-based education contexts who can effectively translate research into practice, influence policy, use data effectively in decision making, and organize individuals and groups to address challenges collaboratively and successfully.

The Doctor of Education Degree (EdD) is a practice-based, doctoral level program for professional leadership in P-20 or community-based educational contexts. The EdD will prepare leaders within the profession to address complex educational challenges by combining decision-focused analytic and research skills with a broad-based understanding of systems anchored in principles of social justice and equity and access to public education.

This program reflects a cohort model, with courses scheduled to be convenient for your busy life; courses will generally be offered in weekend, hybrid (part face-to-face, part online), online, and/or summer intensive formats. Students applying to this program must be prepared to join and follow their cohort in taking the prescribed coursework and experiences for three consecutive years.

We welcome applications from individuals with master's degrees, at least a 3.2 graduate-level GPA, five or more years of experience in an appropriate P-20 or community-based educational context, and a strong interest in exploring problems of educational practice or pressing questions through inquiry in the EdD program. We are accepting applications from September 1 through November 1, 2009, for a Summer, 2010 start.
