Texarkana Gazette23 minutes ago.earned a Bachelor of Science in Education from Southern Arkansas University in May 1996, a Master of Science in Secondary Education from Texas A&M University-Texarkana in December 1998 and a Master of Education in Educational Administration from A&M-Texarkana in December 2004. In the early 1890s Harvard University required completion of a high school course in physics for admission. This spurred the beginning of the science curriculum in American schools. Ten years later Harvard added chemistry to its requirements for admission. Many other colleges and universities followed suit. High school science classes became gatekeeper courses for college admission-a situation that turned out to be a continuing problem for science in schools and for the preparation of science teachers.
Faculty research positions and post-secondary teaching careers are common for graduates of education science degree programs. These careers are overlapping since education science professors often perform important research, in addition to leading classes for students. After completing an education science graduate degree program and writing a dissertation, you can begin to apply for faculty positions with colleges and universities.
If you have completed a relevant Bachelor’s degree at a Dutch research university you could also consider a career as a teacher in secondary education. Please consult our Educatieve Module website (in Dutch) for more information. After completion of this programme (30 ECTS-credits), you will receive a (limited) second degree teacher qualification that qualifies you to teach at lower secondary education (vmbo-t and the lower grades in havo and vwo).
Science centers, in contrast, typically impose no such curriculum, and the learning pathways to be followed are normally determined by the learners themselves. Mapping learners’ achievements thus depends on recognizing the destinations that are reached along this pathway. It also depends on an understanding that the journey and the destinations are equally significant.
The United States has developed as a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers, and innovators. In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM.
