The M.Ed. K-8 Mathematics and Science Education Program is designed for certified teachers who are interested in developing understanding of mathematics and science curricula and materials appropriate for their classrooms. Candidates will review current research and design and implement a research project that focuses on mathematics or science in an appropriate setting. 

Courses are offered in blocks during Summer and Winter Terms. Candidates may enter the program during either term. The program is composed of 30 credits. There are no electives.
All courses in this program are online. Each candidate must have a computer with speakers and microphone to participate in the courses. 

In addition to the general requirements for admission to graduate studies at SRU, applicants for the M.Ed. K-8 Math/Sci Program must submit the following:
  • Transcript(s) for all undergraduate and graduate work completed prior to the application, with a minimum 3.0 undergraduate GPA are required.
  • A legible copy of the applicant’s current teaching certificate must be submitted.
  • A resume indicating teaching experiences (including substitute teaching) is required.
 Applicants may be offered “conditional admission,” if the graduate coordinator believes the applicants can be successful in the chosen program, but, for some reason, the candidate does not meet all the application criteria at the time the application is submitted. Conditionally admitted applicants must have a 3.0 GPA upon the completion of the first 12 credits of coursework, and must remove any conditions prior to that time, or they will be unable to continue in the program. 

All candidates admitted to the program must apply for degree candidacy by the time they have earned a maximum of 12 credits.
