Graduate Certificate in Science in Education 15 credits
Lesley University's online Graduate Certificate in Science in Education integrates STEM content areas, infuses local environmental issues as an authentic learning context, and mentors teachers in how educational research is translated into classroom practice. This program, which meets endorsement requirements in multiple US states, is designed for classroom teachers, curriculum specialists, and instructional resource persons responsible for science education in grades 1-8. The program consists of five courses, of which two are required and three may be chosen according to the participant's needs and interests or to meet state endorsement/second license requirements. Coursework fosters a hands-on, interactive approach to teaching science.
This certificate program may also be used as a specialization to fulfill some of the requirements of the M.Ed. Individually Designed Program for Educators and the M.Ed. in Educational Technology.
Please note: In certain states, a student may receive an endorsement/second license by completing this 15-credit program. It is important to check with your teacher licensing office, as additional steps may be necessary in order to meet state requirements.
