Opportunities for Science Educations from CSUN


 Master’s Program in Science Education 

Now accepting applications!  California State University Northridge is now accepting applications for Cohort-9 of the Master’s Program in Science Education which starts Fall 2020..  There will be an information meeting on Friday, February 7 at 4:30 PM in Education 2114. You may find out more about the program and apply online on our website. 

 The Master's degree in Secondary Science Education prepares secondary science teachers to become science teaching specialists, science curriculum coordinators, student teacher supervisors, science department chairpersons, and doctoral students. School districts generally award salary increases to teachers holding master’s degrees, and master’s degrees are required for part-time teaching at the community college or university level. 

 In Fall 2020, CSUN will form its ninth Science Education Master's cohort designed specifically for secondary science teachers.  We invite you to apply for this program, which leads to a Master's in Secondary Science Education.
