The program of study for the online Science for Educators specialization requires that 18 credit hours, of the 36 credit hour Applied Science degree, be taken from the Science for Educators courses.
Begin Classes Right Away
Students may choose to take up to two courses as "non-degree seeking" before being formally admitted into the master's program.
Unique Course Design
- Every course has a uniform, systematic approach that shows how, why and where science fits into the real world and applications for curriculum
- Courses integrate science content from previous courses demonstrating how in science, everything's connected to everything else
- Courses and content are designed around the National Science Education Standards
Investigate biotechnology and its application in solving problems. Connects biotechnology to basic science concepts in biology and chemistry.
Prereq: NRES/BIOS 220 and 222. ENTO 406/806 is offered spring semester of odd-numbered calendar years. Offered on in the spring semester of odd-numbered calendar years. Interrelationships of the biotic and abiotic factors as they influence insect development, behavior, distribution, and abundance.
Insects as Educational Tools for the Classroom
Prereq: Introductory entomology course or permission. Class taught via Blackboard. Offered fall semester. Insect diversity, insect structure and function, insect ecology and behavior, and the beneficial and detrimental roles of insects. Integrates the study of insects into the classroom to enhance science education.
Teaching Applications of Food Science
Pre-Requisite: BIOS 101 and CHEM 109. Using food as a model, teachers will learn important food science concepts including:
Laboratory Earth: Earth and Its Systems
Consider the Earth as a system and the "real world" applications of fundamental physical science processes in this system.
Laboratory Earth: Earth's Natural Resource...
Laboratory Earth: Earth's Natural Resource Systems
Apply fundamental concepts in the Earth and physical sciences to understand Earth's natural resource system.
Laboratory Earth: Earth’s Changing Systems
Individual or group projects in research, literature review, or extension of course work under supervision and evaluation of a departmental faculty member. Independent study contracts for ENTO 896 must be filed with department.
Laboratory Earth: Earth & Geospatial...
Laboratory Earth: Earth & Geospatial Technology
Pre-Requisite: Advanced study of selected topics not presented in established courses.
Seminar in Curriculum and Teaching of Science
Exploration of current literature, yearbooks, research and experiments in the curriculum and teaching of science.
