Master of natural science admission

The Master of Natural Science  degree program at Arizona State University is a three-year program designed for in-service science teachers seeking to enhance their career through interdisciplinary graduate training in physics, physical science, physics education or related sciences. MNS courses are open to in-service high school teachers who have completed two semesters of college physics and an introductory calculus course. Teachers may make up deficiencies in regularly scheduled courses.

Courses are typically offered in summer sessions so as to be compatible with full-time appointments in the high school system nationwide. The program is designed to be completed in three summers. Since the MNS program must be interdisciplinary, students are expected to emphasize coursework in two or more areas of concentration (e.g. chemistry and physics). The MNS program is especially suited for individuals who desire professional training rather than research training.

Elgibility
