About

The Master of Science (M.S.) degree with a major in Physics in Education at Indiana Wesleyan University is designed for practicing secondary school teachers who wish to become qualified to instruct advanced placement, dual enrollment, or early college courses, as well as deepen their understanding of physics and advanced educational classroom practice. 

Overview

Overview

Candidates will complete a 33-credit hour program consisting of 18 hours in graduate physics and 15 in graduate education. Candidates must already be credentialed for teaching physics in P-12 schools and/or community colleges, as this Master of Science (M.S.) degree with a major in Physics in Education at Indiana Wesleyan University will not lead to initial or advanced state licensure in those areas.

The 18 credit hours of courses in physics provide a broad understanding of the field, strengthening physics knowledge, critical thinking, mathematical modeling and quantitative skills in fundamental domains along with a biblical worldview.

The 15 credit hours of courses in education are designed to provide participants with methods and materials to deepen their teaching ability and help their own students learn, including culturally responsive teaching, ethics and faith, and research and technology tools. It aligns to the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation's advanced-level program standards. Course instruction is designed to model best practices and procedures in the classroom.
