Center for Science & Math Education

Master of Education in Earth and Space Science Teaching

The Center for Science and Math Education and the School of Education at Loyola University Chicago introduce a new M.Ed. program designed specifically for high school Earth and space science teaching.

Designed in collaboration with Chicago Public Schools and area museums, the M.Ed. in Earth and Space Science Teaching program is designed for science teachers in urban settings. Focused on learners in high-need districts, the program emphasizes inquiry pedagogy, as supported by the current literature on effective science teaching.

The M.Ed. in Earth and Space Science Teaching program is designed to fit the busy schedule of inservice teachers. Fall and spring classes are held one night a week, and summer classes provide concentrated, in-depth learning.

Because of generous anticipated funding from the Math Science Partnership of the Illinois State Board of Education and Loyola University Chicago, qualified applicants to the program’s first cohort (those entering the program in September 2009) will receive tuition at no cost. This subsidy will be contingent on Loyola’s successful application to receive ISBE grant funds.
