Certificate of Advanced Study in Science Teaching


Course Description

The School of Education offers a Science Education Certificate Program within the M.A. area of Science, Mathematics, and Educational Technology for Diverse Populations. The goals and objectives of the certificate are to prepare educators who are equipped with a repertoire of knowledge, skills, and dispositions in Science Education and who demonstrate leadership in science instruction pedagogy by understanding and applying the California science education standards. It is intended to serve regularly enrolled, graduate candidate students who wish to add an additional certificate to the Master’s degree, as well as those students who would like to advance their knowledge in science teaching without necessarily taking the sequence of all the courses for the master’s degree.
