Spark Interest in Science

Science Education at UNC is home to the Master of Arts degree in Science Education for practicing teachers. Our program is also responsible for all science coursework within the various teaching licensure programs offered by the university. Students pursuing licensure can major in many different disciplines including Physics, Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry, Early Childhood and Elementary Education.

Science Education also has active collaborations with the Colorado School of Mines to prepare secondary math and science teachers and Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon, Colorado, where fellows earn a UNC Masters degree in Science Education while providing programming in environmental education.
