About

The Ed.M in Science Education program from Rutgers University offers tracks in physical science, biological science, and general science. The program is designed for individuals who possess a bachelor’s degree and have a background in teaching and/or in physical science, biological science, or general science. 

Overview

The Ed.M in Science Education program from Rutgers University is designed for individuals who possess a bachelor’s degree and have a background in teaching and/or in physical science, biological science, or general science. Middle school teachers with a sufficient science background can apply to the program, too.

This program has three major goals:

  • to help students learn pedagogical content knowledge of physical science or biological science, i.e., content-specific teaching methods in these disciplines;
  • to provide students with a grounding in the historical and philosophical contexts of the discipline that they are teaching, i.e., history and philosophy of physical science or life science; and
  • to provide students with research experiences in physical science or life science. This will help them better understand how scientists work and how discipline-specific knowledge develops.
