About

Our MAT in Science Education at the University of Georgia is for students who have a bachelor's degree in science and wish to earn initial teaching certification in a secondary science field (biology, chemistry, earth/space science, or physics) at the T-5 (advanced) level.

Overview

For students with a background in the sciences or closely related fields but not yet holding T-4 teacher certification, coursework leading to certification in a Secondary Science field (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or Earth/Space Science, grades 6-12) can be pursued at the graduate level as part of this master’s degree option. 

This degree program in Science Education at the University of Georgia consists of 36 semester hours of coursework, plus fieldwork and related enrollments usually totalling another 18 hours (this can be achieved in a variety of contexts). This program presumes an undergraduate major in a core science area (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology) or a nearly equivalent coursework background. Those with degrees in other science-related fields (e.g., Agricultural Sciences, Exercise Science, Allied Health Sciences) may need to do additional core science coursework at the advanced undergraduate level before beginning Science Education courses.
