Master of Science in Science Education (MSSE)
Designed to be completed in two Summer Sessions with five or more semesters interim distance learning course work.
The Master of Science in Science Education degree program is designed for practicing science educators. This intercollege-interdisciplinary degree is sponsored by the colleges of Agriculture; Education, Health and Human Development; Letters and Science; and The Graduate School at MSU. The degree program is coordinated by Intercollege Programs for Science Education.
Thirty semester credits of course work are required for the degree. The program of study includes distance courses that students take by computer-mediated conferencing from their homes or work places and summer campus courses. The program ends with an on-campus summer session in which the student presents the culminating capstone project.
All students complete core courses (12 credits) in education and develop interdisciplinary combinations of courses (18 credits) from offerings in biology, chemistry, earth sciences, microbiology, physics and other areas. About three-fourths of the courses are offered through a distance learning mode of instruction.
Each student is advised by a three-person faculty graduate committee, and graduate programs are designed taking into account the student’s background, interests and career goals.
Summer Session 2017 will include the following courses:
