BSU Partners With American Museum on Natural History in Graduate STEM Certification

A new, online graduate certificate in science education offered by Bridgewater State University in partnership with the American Museum on Natural History (AMNH) is enrolling for the fall II semester that starts Oct. 31.

Through its online Seminars on Science program, AMNH has been offering graduate courses on science education for the past 15 years. The BSU partnership has been created with the needs of Prek-12 educators in mind who want to update their pedagogical skills in science.

Educators taking the courses can be eligible for professional development points (PDPs). Participation in the classes offered by AMNH is not restricted to educators. However, to earn the graduate certificate from Bridgewater, participants need to have a bachelor’s degree.

Four courses will be required to complete the certificate and each course will count as a full three-credit course from Bridgewater. Anyone interested can sign up at learn.amnh.org. After taking the course, receiving a final grade and a certificate of completion, a participant can apply for graduate credit at Bridgewater.

For more information about the Bridgewater certificate, contact the College of Graduate Studies at 508.531.1300 or visit http://www.amnh.org/learn-teach/seminars-on-science.
