Designed for in-service science teachers, this interdisciplinary ASU MNS program provides practical pedagogy with an emphasis on the modeling method of instruction as well as strong content in both contemporary physics and integrated science. Residents of 15 western states may apply for in-state tuition.

Program Description

Degree Awarded: MNS Natural Science (Physics)

The MNS curriculum provides transdisciplinary graduate training in physics, physical science or physics education. The program is especially suited for high school science teachers who desire professional training rather than research training. Designed for flexibility, the curriculum also features individualized professional graduate programs. These programs are well-suited to the backgrounds and goals of students. Students are expected to emphasize coursework in two or more areas of concentration. The program must be transdisciplinary.

Degree Requirements

30 credit hours including the required applied project course (PHS 593)

Supervisory Committee:

The graduate advisor and the student suggest persons to serve on the supervisory committee. The supervisory committee recommends the plan of study, after conferring with the student.

The supervisory committee, consisting of three faculty members, is appointed by the vice provost for the Graduate College upon the recommendation of the chair of the Department of Physics.

The supervisory committee is formed soon after the student has been admitted to the degree program and must reflect the transdisciplinary nature of the program.

The supervisory committee may require more courses, depending upon the background of the student and the nature of the proposed program. In some cases undergraduate courses may be required to overcome deficiencies.

Teachers may enroll in these courses in order to earn credit toward recertification or to pursue a Master of Natural Science degree. These courses are held during the summer. Depending on teacher interest, they may be offered at other times. For some courses, the prerequisites are two semesters of trigonometry-based college physics and an introductory calculus course.
