The graduate program in science education offers a Professional Licensure concentration for students who want to expand their study of biology, chemistry, earth science and environmental science. This Professional Licensure program enhances teaching methods, curricula, research and content in science education. Within this track students can pursue professional licensure in general science.

The science teaching concentration is flexible enough to accommodate students interested in elementary, middle school, secondary or non-traditional science education. Students work closely with an advisor to select the appropriate balance of content and teaching courses to meet their objectives. Students pursuing professional licensure in general science must complete a science teaching internship and 18 credits of coursework in science content chosen from at least two of the sciences including biology, earth science and appropriate courses in physics and chemistry offered through the science education program.
