M.S. in Education - Science (Grades K-8)
Offered By: Walden University
Walden University has updated its M.S. in Education program with a specialization in Science (Gr. Kâ€“8) to reflect the latest innovations and standards in science education. The enhanced specialization blends science content with pedagogy so teachers learn science in the same way they will teach it to their students, with an emphasis on inquiry-based, experiential learning. The curriculum aligns with the 5 core propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), the National Science Education Standards (NSES), and the standards set forth by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA).
Walden's M.S.Ed. program is offered through The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership, named for the former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education. The college is the choice of more than 37,000 students and alumni. Walden also supports the teaching profession by offering more than $5 million in education scholarships for classroom teachers. In addition, M.S.Ed. alumni strongly endorse their Walden experience. More than 95% of M.S.Ed. graduates said earning their degrees at Walden enhanced their professional performance (Based on Walden's 2007 graduate survey respondents).
