The goal of this comprehensive design of the program requirements is to develop the student’s professional knowledge and competencies in excellent science teaching, foster the student’s science teaching in elementary, secondary, and vocational schools, as well as cultivate the student’s interdisciplinary understanding to meet the need of talents in education fields. Our alumni who completed the master’s program typically work in elementary or secondary schools and public or private organizations. They can also choose to pursue a higher degree.

Prospective doctoral students that the GISE aims to recruit are those who have obtained a master’s degree in the fields of natural science, engineering, medical science, and agricultural science. The admission is through a review of application documents and an oral test. Once admitted, the students will be able to enroll in science education specialized courses, including (1) Science and Society, (2) Cognitive and Science Learning, (3) Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, and (4) Digital Learning. In order to help the students obtain thorough knowledge in science education research, the students are required to take research methodology courses offered by the institute as well as science courses offered by the College of Science. In order to foster and develop the students’ research competencies, their ability in teaching science and science education courses at the university, and their knowledge of general education in mathematics and science, prior the graduate degree exam, the students should have: (1) attended international conferences overseas, (2) published journal articles and conference papers, (3) passed the English proficiency test, (4) at least one-year work experience that is relevant to science and/or mathematics education, (5) passed the candidacy examination, and 6) given the presentation of dissertation proposal that is open to the public. Our alumni who completed the doctoral program typically work at public or private universities, research institutions, and secondary schools.
