Master of Arts in Science

The Master of Arts in Science is a nonthesis degree designed to allow students to increase their knowledge base in two different fields of science. Traditional and nontraditional students interested in pursuing or advancing science-related careers will discover a host of new opportunities after completing the program. Secondary science teachers who enroll in the program will be better prepared to face classroom challenges with a broad science background. The mission of this interdisciplinary science degree program is teach science content to local K-12 teachers, especially middle school and high school teachers.
