Our program offers primary and secondary school teachers a 20% tuition reduction if you teach in a public or private school, and a 40% reduction if you teach at a Catholic school.
Our Master of Science in Environmental Science program offers a relevant and valuable academic experience, combined with the flexibility that you need as a teacher. Two non-thesis track options allow you to increase your experience in environmentally-relevant fields that you can bring back to your own classroom. Teachers choose between developing an electronic portfolio that will highlight learning outcomes as part of the MSES program or carrying out a capstone project to design suitable curriculum, test pedagogical issues, and further develop your own interests.
Classes are held in the evenings, with weekend lab courses and field trips if necessary, to accommodate your work schedule. You may pursue the program part-time on a schedule that is comfortable for you.
