Masters of Science for Teachers (MST)

Program Description

The Masters of Science for Teachers program is designed to provide graduate‐level classroom and laboratory instruction for teachers of science, mathematics, engineering, and/or technology. The emphasis of the courses is on content, rather than pedagogy. Masters of Science for Teachers students are encouraged to develop laboratory exercises, demonstrations, and teaching methods from the course content and apply these as projects in their own classrooms during the academic year. Courses for the participants are offered in a variety of disciplines and are taught by New Mexico Tech faculty. Classes build on fundamental principles and offer new concepts and novel teaching methods. Courses are offered throughout the year via distance instruction and as live courses on the New Mexico Tech campus and around the state.
