The Master of Science in Multidisciplinary Science (MSCI) degree program is currently not accepting new applications.
The Master of Science in Multidisciplinary Science (MSCI) degree program integrates scholarship, research, and practice in collaboration with individuals, communities, educational institutions, and agencies. Offered by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the College of Education, the program is designed to meet the professional needs of middle school math and science teachers or high school science teachers by expanding their science and math content and pedagogy knowledge.
Students complete 36 credit hours of graduate coursework in integrated math and science education based upon the area of emphasis chosen - middle or high (secondary) school. Specifically designed for employed teachers, this program focuses on increasing pedagogy and content knowledge with cross-disciplinary teaching and learning applications. Students will be placed in a cohort that allows opportunities for interaction with their peers and instructors.
Coursework is offered online in the fall and spring semesters with a three-week face-to-face session each summer. Meeting locations depend on the area of emphasis chosen:
Semester-based courses align with the Academic Calendar of Texas Tech University.
Applicants must have a valid Texas teaching certificate and must be currently teaching in a middle or high school.
Students may also pursue advanced graduate work that would lead to a Doctor of Philosophy in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in science and math. Contact Teresa Neal at 806.742.1998, ext. 430 for more information.
