The goal of this program is to educate individuals who will: address issues of what students learn and how they learn it when studying mathematical and scientific subjects; be well-versed both in a subject area (biology, chemistry, mathematics, or physics) and in the cognitive issues related to learning and teaching that subject; contribute to the growing body of knowledge about cognitive processes in scientific and mathematical understanding; apply knowledge gained from research and scholarly inquiry to instructional and curricular development; and influence educational policy and discourse in formal and informal settings through their work as scholars of mathematics and science education. The program is composed of three strands: research, practical application, and formal course work. All three are central to the program and will be ongoing throughout the student's course of study. The basic model for the program is that of apprenticeship. Under this model, students will work closely with individual program faculty members and will carry out research projects and make practical applications of their studies through teaching or related activity.
