MS in Education - Science (Grades K–8)

For students to be competitive in the 21st-century global marketplace, they need strong scientific knowledge and abilities. This newly enhanced specialization in Science blends content with pedagogy so you can learn science in the same way you will teach the subject matter in the classroom—through inquiry-based learning that promotes hands-on and exciting educational experiences. The program aligns with the five core propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), the National Science Education Standards (NSES), and the standards of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), and offers you the knowledge you need to effectively teach science in today’s classroom.

Emphasis on Practical Strategies:

  • Engage in authentic scientific collaboration with fellow teachers and science faculty through discussion boards, labs, and classroom exercises.
  • Use both real and virtual laboratory experiences to simultaneously learn content and pedagogy.
  • Learn the latest technology and research and how to adapt it to your instruction.
  • Gain practical strategies to help your students achieve on state and national tests.
  • Excel in a program that was developed in collaboration with national leaders in science education and Walden faculty.

Walden offers both state-approved educator licensure programs as well as programs and courses that do not lead to licensure or endorsements. Prospective students must review their state licensure requirements prior to enrolling. For more information, please refer to

Prospective Alabama students: Contact the Teacher Education and Certification Division of the Alabama State Department of Education at 1-334-242-9935 or to verify that these programs qualify for teacher certification, endorsement, and/or salary benefits. 

Prospective Washington state students are advised to contact the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction at 1-360-725-6275 or to determine whether Walden’s programs in the field of education are approved for teacher certification or endorsements in Washington state. Additionally, teachers are advised to contact their individual school district as to whether this program may qualify for salary advancement.

Note to all Pennsylvania residents: Walden University’s teacher preparation program and special education endorsement programs are approved by the Minnesota Board of Teaching as leading to licensure and endorsement, respectively. Because these programs are not reviewed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, candidates are instructed to apply for Pennsylvania certification as out-of-state graduates of a teacher preparation program.
