Biology for Science Teachers
Note: As of Fall 2022, this program is no longer accepting new students.
The Master of Science (MS) in Biology is designed to fit the schedules of working teachers. It consists of two three-week summer institutes in residence at Washington University. The remaining course work, which is performed during the academic years, is completed online. Summer housing is available for out-of-town students and is included in the cost of the program.
The MS in Biology program is offered through University College and resides at the Institute for School Partnership, Washington University's signature effort to strategically improve teaching and learning within the K-12 education community. Grounded in this manner, the program receives the added benefit that comes from being tied to an organization that truly focuses on teacher and student success while providing the best professional development from top biology faculty. The faculty who teach in this program use their own and related current research in their courses to demonstrate the importance of scientific issues to the global community.
