Here is what you need to submit to our department: 

  • The online form.
  • Official copy of transcripts from all previous college work. Transcripts must be sent to both the Graduate School and to our department.
  • Three to five letters of recommendation that address your potential as a teacher and a scholar. Recommendations should be relevant to the degree program--science or science education--for which admission is sought. At least two of the references should address your potential for academic success in a doctoral program, and at least two other references should address your potential success as a science educator or postsecondary teacher of science. Note: One person may address one or both of these areas.

Don't forget to send materials to the Graduate School.
