M.A. Science Education (Secondary Chemistry)
To help meet the urgent nationwide need for middle and high school STEM teachers, WGU offers an affordable, accredited, online Master of Arts degree program in Science Education (Secondary Chemistry). This program provides already-licensed teachers with a greater knowledge and proficiency in general chemistry, physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, climate change, and pre-calculus and calculus. The Master of Arts, Science Education (Secondary Chemistry) incorporates hands-on labs, and is recognized by all 50 states. WGU’s School of Education is CAEP-accredited.
WGU holds the same accreditation as many state universities. We offer low, flat-rate tuition that’s about half what students pay at other online universities. With our unparalleled online flexibility, students can complete most of their coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from our competency-based learning model, which lets them pass most courses as quickly as they prove mastery of the material, making it possible to accelerate their progress and potentially graduate faster. Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.
