Our master's degree for science teachers is designed for working teachers with undergraduate degrees in one or more science disciplines who are qualified through standard or alternative licensure procedures to teach middle or high school sciences.
Colorado State University produces more STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) graduates to help drive the state's economy than any other campus, and we produce more STEM high school teachers than any other university in Colorado. We are proud to offer an online master's degree for biology, physics, and chemistry teachers in Colorado and beyond.
We also offer an Advanced Science Instruction certificate that allows you to earn University credit and improve your skills without the commitment of a full degree program. Certificates are shorter, focus on the core subject matter, and do not require admission to the University. Coursework completed as part of this certificate can later be applied to your M.N.S.E should you be accepted to the program. You also have the option to take individual courses as professional development.
