Environmental and Informal Science Education - MS
Florida Institute of Technology
Department Of Mathematical Sciences
The master of science in environmental and informal science education program is designed for those who wish to further their knowledge of the environmental and informal sciences and educational theory, research, and practice. Students may specialize in either environmental education or informal science education.
The program includes graduate courses in science/environmental content, education, and research. This program is open to individuals with experience and/or interest in formal programs (i.e., schools) or non-formal/informal programs (e.g., programs delivered through nature/environmental centers, parks, zoos, aquaria, museums, media, online sites). Education coursework complements students’ previous educational experience.
From a practical perspective, there are four options available to students in each specialization:
- a thesis research option;
- a non-thesis research option;
- an internship option; or
- a professional option, which consists solely of coursework (i.e., no research or internship).
It is noteworthy that many students have selected the non-thesis research option, which has not deterred them from entering PhD degree programs either here at Florida Tech or at other universities in the US, as well as in other countries.
