Secondary Certification in the Sciences or Mathematics

Main page content

The Master of Education Program with a focus on Secondary Certification partners with local schools to prepare future teachers to help students in middle and high school gain knowledge and success in the sciences or mathematics. The preparation of secondary teachers in the sciences or mathematics education addresses among the most significant gaps in the teacher corps today.

The Secondary Certification program begins in summer quarter only and is four quarters of full-time (mostly evening) study and clinical practice (or approx. two years part-time) for the certificate only. Students wishing to also obtain a master’s degree can usually complete this in an additional year of part-time evening study which is conducive to a working teacher’s schedule.

This program is based on the most current educational research and theory. Our goal is to ensure that our graduates have a positive impact on student learning.

Students will earn certification in a content area:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Space Science
  • Physics
  • Mathematics
