MA Education & Society - Thesis - Mathematics & Science

The Thesis option in the Education & society program consist of 21 credits of coursework with an additional 24 credits of thesis research and writing.

Thesis "courses" are not actual courses but essentially place holders that add the 24 credits associated with the research and writing of the thesis to a student's record. These courses are opened specifically for individual students and require the student to have a supervisor in place.

This MA concentration emphasizes research in mathematics and science education, including a specific focus on teacher education in the area of math and science. Graduates will gain sufficient research experience to conduct empirical research in math and science education and sufficient teacher education experience to assume roles as teacher educators in university or other settings. The program includes targeted opportunities for candidates to develop skills, knowledge, and practices specific to teaching and learning mathematics and science, mathematics and science teacher preparation, and research in both of these areas.
