Graduate Programs in Applied Science Education
The Applied Science and Mathematics Track is the original MS-ASE degree for professional educators. It is designed for teachers with at least one year of experience, who wish to improve their knowledge and application of science and mathematics in the classroom.
The Earth System Science Track (ESS) is designed for in-service teachers who want to improve their understanding of Earth Science. Teachers can earn an Earth Science endorsement.
Master's Degree Report Option
This option requires a report describing the results of an independent study project. The scope of the research topic should be defined in such a way that a full-time student could complete the requirements for a master’s degree in twelve months or three semesters following the completion of course work by regularly scheduling graduate research credits.
Of the minimum total of 30 credits, at least 24 must be earned in course work other than the project:
|Course work||24 credits|
|Total (minimum)||30 credits|
|Distribution of course work credit|
|5000–6000 series (minimum)||12 credits|
|3000–4000 level (maximum)||12 credits|
Programs may have stricter requirements and may require more than the minimum number of credits listed here
