Science Education

Welcome to Science Education at CWU

The Science Education department at Central Washington University provides students with opportunity to develop contemporary skills in science teaching that are consistent with state and national science standards.

We promote student understanding of scientific concepts relevant to the individual and to society, and foster an appreciation of scientific inquiry. Our students obtain a broad education covering a wide variety of content disciplines. Our constructivist teaching philosophy, curriculum, and facilities support a rich education experience characterized by:

  • Small class sizes that provide personal connections with award-winning faculty
  • A supportive community of future educators
  • Exciting undergraduate and graduate research opportunities
  • Rewarding field experiences that develop practical teaching skills in real classrooms
