Four strands of inquiry are woven into the various graduate courses. These strands emphasize faculty members' expertise and interests while reflecting the current research agenda of the program area.

About

Strands include:

  • models of science teaching and learning,
  • models of science learning environment design,
  • models of teacher preparation and renewal
  • models of engagement with scientists.

Many of the science education courses use innovative technologies in their design, including Web-based community portals, distance technologies and hand-held data-collection devices. The program offers Master of Science (M.S.) (thesis) and Master of Education (M.Ed.) (non-thesis) degrees. Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees are available for students who are seeking a research as well as a teaching emphasis and college or university faculty positions. The TLAC department often has funding to support full-time Ph.D. students.
