The Master of Science (MSc) programme in Educational Science and Technology is for anyone fascinated by education and training, yet not intending to become a teacher.
The gap in average mathematics scores between students in families with income below the federal poverty level and those in families with income at or above 200% of the federal poverty level was 9 points at the beginning of kindergarten and 10 points by the spring of third grade; the science score gap was 5 points at the beginning of first grade and 8 points by the spring of third grade.
Recognized as a national research leader in the fields of mathematics and science education, this department combines the expertise of its internationally known faculty with the energy and innovation of its rising young scholars. Yet today, few American students pursue expertise in STEM fieldsâ€”and we have an inadequate pipeline of teachers skilled in those subjects. That’s why President Obama has set a priority of increasing the number of students and teachers who are proficient in these vital fields.
