Overview

There is a strong need for passionate, skilled science teachers in northeast Ohio, statewide and nationally. Baldwin Wallace University is answering this call through an intensive on-campus program that prepares students who have a bachelor's degree in biology or chemistry (or related science degree) to become highly-effective science teachers for grades 7-12 ... in just 12 months!

Preparing Teachers Through Experience

The MAEd in science teaching is a 12-month, full-time program that begins in May and prepares students to teach by the following summer. Students will master research-based teaching strategies along with five-days-per-week field and clinical experiences in local schools. An integrative seminar supports the student's professional development as a teacher. Graduates of the program are guaranteed job interviews for any open position in the students’ teaching field within the placement school district.

Program Features

  • Inquiry-based learning, research-based teaching, and technology integration are guiding principles of the program
  • 12-month, full-time program starts in May, with MAEd and license completion at the end of the following spring semester, so students are eligible to teach in the fall
  • Cohort model where students form close professional relationships with classmates and faculty
  • Individualized mentoring by supervising faculty in the placement district
  • Extensive field and clinical work in classrooms throughout the academic year
  • Comprehensive program price includes tuition, books, and fees for professional association memberships and background checks
