About

The Educational Specialist (EdS) in Secondary Education Science online degree program is designed to prepare science teachers to become leaders in teaching science in their local settings, in providing professional development in science, and in the administration of science departments by enhancing professional competencies.

Overview

Current secondary education teachers who earn the degree may be eligible for teacher certification at the specialist level in the following teaching fields: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or General Science. Those who complete the program will acquire knowledge that will assist them in becoming nationally board-certified teachers.
