MA in Education: Natural Science & Environmental Education
Among Hamline's education programs is its Master of Arts in Education in Natural Science and Environmental Education, offering individuals the knowledge and experience needed to take leadership roles in their local settings. The program helps students recognize and clarify their commitment to a sustainable world. Using community and service as the context, theory and practice are linked. Complex community issues require individuals be reflective about their environmental values and help others reflect as well. The Master's program emphasizes field-based research and community collaborations. The faculty uses multiple learning strategies - creative arts experiences, field-based science inquiry, technology-mediated distance learning - suited to varied teaching and learning situations. Online, weekend and intensive summer courses offer choices to complete degree requirements. The program addresses the distance challenges of students from around Minnesota, the nation and the world and creates a community of international learners who share a common vision: Think globally, teach locally.
